He claims that certain Ghanaian firms are unable to employ graduates from various colleges because they lack the necessary skills especially IT.

“We have about 9 million people in a global economy that is driven by digitization, even though the jobs are in that direction we have less than a thousand graduates with IT-related skills every year from our tertiary universities. What has put the universities to sleep without realizing this major shift in where the world is going?” he observed.

According to the minister, the Ghanaian universities, therefore, must align their training with the industry needs in the face of rising unemployment among the youth.
