Mpraeso MP to youth: Take advantage of “Obaatampa” programme

Davis Ansah Opoku urges the youth to form partnerships and register enterprises around the Ghana CARES "Obaatampa" programme

The MP for Mpraeso, Davis Ansah Opoku, has called on national service personnel in the Kwahu South Municipality to grab opportunities under the Ghana COVID-19 Alleviation and Revitalisation of Enterprise Support (Ghana CARES) programme.

Speaking at the launch of the National Service Week celebration in the Mpraeso constituency, Opoku advised the youth to see themselves as job creators and not job seekers.

He noted that the Ghana CARES (Obaatampa) programme aims at supporting commercial farming and attracting educated youth into agriculture.

He said: “Other areas of the programme will be building Ghana’s light manufacturing sector, developing machine tools and a digital economy, areas you already have the skills and knowledge in.”

He urged the youth to form partnerships and register enterprises around the programme’s focus areas.

“The government intends to invest GHC100 billion into the programme and other initiatives through Foreign Direct Investments (FDIs) and Private Public Partnerships,” Opoku said.

The President Nana Akufo-Addo has hinted of plans to create one million more jobs under the Ghana CARES ‘Obaatampa’ project for the next three years.
