According to the Effutu MP, the personnel have a legitimate course to complain, especially when the programme has been terminated.

Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, in an interview on Joy News‘ The Probe, said he does not know when the personnel will be paid.

However, considering the outstanding months, the lawmaker has implored them to know there is an issue and trusts that government is taking steps to resolve it.

“I believe the government has heard them, and if we are not talking about a year or six months allowance and it is five, obviously it will be worked on, and you will be paid,” he said in an interview on Accra-based TV3.

The lawmaker emphasised the personnel and all Ghanaian youth must have faith in the incumbent government, especially due to the introduction of the Youstart programme and Electronic Transaction Levy (E-levy).

This, he explained, was the hope for the generation, hence required the support of all and sundry.

“The hope for them is Youstart because not all graduates can be absorbed in the public sector, and the e-levy is a new platform for opportunities, so let us all support it,” he added.
