Gov’t to enroll Hygiene graduates onto YEA – Haruna Gov’t to enroll Hygiene graduates onto YEA – Haruna

The Employment and Labour Relations Minister, Haruna Iddrisu, says government will soon enroll all graduates of the School of Hygiene onto the Youth Entrepreneurial Agency (YEA).

According to the Minister, this will be a temporary arrangement for the graduates who are yet to be posted after completing school for nearly five years.

Over 200 out of the about 1,470 graduates of the School of Hygiene on Monday picketed at the premises of the Employment Ministry to demand postings.

The graduates say they have stayed at home jobless for nearly five years as several pleas for them to be employed have proved futile.

This is the third time the graduates had picketed, after a similar one at the Flagstaff House and the Local Government Ministry. But Haruna Iddrisu, in an interview with Citi News, called for calm as government works to find permanent jobs for them.

“It is true that government has reneged on its promise to issue the clearance letters from the Ministry of Finance and Local Government, but that notwithstanding, I made a pledge to them and I still stand by the pledge. As a stop gap measure, we will recruit all of them under the Youth Employment Programme.

“While I work on the clearance from the Ministry of Finance and Local Government, we will absorb the 1, 470 of them under the Youth Employment Agency. They will be on such allowances and salaries as if they were on permanent employment.

They have to decide between doing something and doing nothing with their own productive skills that they have acquired.”

Distribute fertiliser free of charge to farmers – PFAG Distribute fertiliser free of charge to farmers – PFAG

 

 

 

 

The Peasant Farmers Association of Ghana (PFAG), has recommended that fertiliser should be distributed to food crop farmers free of charge as it is being done for cocoa farmers.

The PFAG said even under the National Fertiliser Subsidy Programme (FSP), prices of fertiliser was still high for the farmers to buy.

“If we actually want to help farmers and to improve the sub-sector’s contribution to Gross Domestic Product (GDP), then we should do it as we do for the cocoa farmers. Although the programme was targetted at small holder farmers, the large scale farmers are getting more than the small scale farmers,” the Programme Officer of the PFAG, Mr Charles Nyaaba, said in an interview with the Graphic business, following the launch of the 2016 FSP by the Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MoFA).

During the launch, the Minister of MoFA, Alhaji Mohammed Muniru Limuna, said the government was subsidising fertilisers at an average of 26 per cent from 21 per cent in previous years.

This means a bag of compound fertiliser would now cost GH¢85 instead of GH¢89 cedis and Uria is GH¢80 cedis against GH¢85 in 2015.

The FSP was initiated in 2008 by government to help farmers increase the rate of fertiliser use and increase production. Farmers paid only half of the cost of the input, as the government absorbed 50 per cent of the cost.
