Prof Kwasi Yankah NewProf Kwesi Yankah, President of Central University College

Professor Kwesi Yankah, President of the Central University College has predicted that the number of graduate unemployed would likely surge to 271,000 this year up from the existing figure of 200,000.

"The number [graduate unemployment] will swell up by 71,000, including new graduates to be churned out during the year," he said.

The grim unemployment situation, he noted, was becoming deep-rooted with even final year students seeking internships returning home empty handed, as industries and work places remained choked.

Professor Yankah, made the prediction during the11th congregation of the Ghana Technology University on Saturday, where 240 scholars graduated with various postgraduate degrees.

“Ghana is sitting on a time bomb with its worsening unemployment situation,” he said.

He also said Ghana’s private sector, which is touted as the engine of growth, was under siege, rocked by astronomically high interest rates, and unfriendly macro-economic climate.

“The painful truth on the ground is the existence today of an ailing economy that is not expanding fast enough to accommodate the unemployed,” he added.

“Let industry and academia improve their dialogue, let’s streamline the academic curriculum; let’s infuse academic work with more practitioners and let even create more internship,” he said.

He said private universities were suffering from dwindling admissions and high students’ attrition due to financial problems arising from the ailing economy.

In spite of considerable setbacks in funding, he said, private universities have been noted for being more innovative in course offering and curriculum, and indulge in significant academic adventure where public universities have been more conservative.

Dr Osei Darkwa, President of Ghana Technology University also expressed concern over the country’s mounting unemployment situation and demanded the academia to review their curricula and forge stronger collaborations with industry players to quell the menace.

“The situation calls for academic institutions to relook their curricular and establish stronger networks with industry in order to deliver relevant programmes to make graduates employable,” he said.

He also urged the universities to forge stronger collaborations with industry players in order to deal with the situation.
