He said some of the beneficiaries have become entrepreneurs after gaining the needed experience from the programme.

"49,000 have so far transitioned either to permanent employment or working for themselves. That's nearly 50% of the beneficiaries.

"We are looking at recruiting many more into the programme in the coming days," he said on Kumasi-based Ash FM in the Ashanti Region as of his tour of the region.

The objectives of the programme are to:

• Provide temporary employment to unemployed graduates
