Government will enroll all graduates of the School of Hygiene who are yet to be posted after completing school onto the Youth Entrepreneurial Agency (YEA), the Employment and Labour Relations Minister, Haruna Iddrisu, has said.

Some angry graduates of the three Schools of Hygiene on Monday picketed at the Ministry of Employment and Labor Relations following delays of government to post them after five years of graduation.

According to them, four batches from the Accra, Ho, and Tamale Schools of Hygiene are still at home with no work in spite of having successfully graduated from their respective schools.

The said graduates embarked on a similar protest in October last year, but were asked to call it off after government's promise to address their concerns.

But, the graduates say they are yet to get those promises fulfilled.

In an interview on Accra-based Citi FM, Haruna Iddrisu said even though government has failed to to issue the clearance letters from the Ministry of Finance and Local Government, "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,” the Employment minister added.
