Gospel singer Diana Asamoah has attributed the widespread unemployment in the nation to the disposition of the young people who have been denied opportunities.
She claims that although young people in the nation can apply for many jobs, their character and particular behaviors prevent them from being hired.
The gospel singer said that recent incidents in which some people show poor moral character when they are providing the assistance, they require have deterred others from helping others.
Speaking in an interview that Bulaba GH saw on Kingdom FM, Diana Asamoah claimed that there is no hardship in Ghana and placed the blame for the high rate of mass unemployment on the younger generation.
“When I hear people complaining that there is no job, almost 90% of them [youth] have jobs they can do but because of their character, they can’t. I will say it again that most Ghanaians are unemployed because of their character. This is a fact,” she said.
She continued: “It is not true [that there is hardship in Ghana]. There are some people it should not be difficult for them. As you are working here, if not for your honesty and good work, you could have been sacked by now.
“Let’s look at the youth of today, the guy called John who was jobless and somebody took him to her house and fed him. What wrong did she do when he stabbed the woman to death? Because of this people are unwilling to help others,” said Diana Asamoah.
The dwindling fortunes of the Ghanaian economy have inflicted hardship on the people with most of the youth grappling with the high rate of unemployment in the country.
It remains to be seen the measures the government would put in place to solve the high rate of unemployment going forward.
