Presidency orders GYEEDA advert withdrawal

President John Mahama has ordered the acting Executive Director of the Ghana Youth Employment and Entrepreneurial Agency (GYEEDA), Kobby Acheampong, to immediately cancel the Agency’s invitation for proposals from the public toward implementing an ICT module.

Adverts in the state-owned Daily Graphic have been running for the proposals requests.

In a statement signed by Minister of Information and Media Relations, Mahama Ayariga, the President said the GYEEDA invitation for proposals must be withdrawn because it is without authorisation.

According to the statement: "The Office of the President has reiterated that all directives on GYEEDA remain in force," adding that: “The request for proposals to implement an ICT model presently being advertised by GYEEDA is therefore without authorization and should be withdrawn."

The president also ordered the acting Executive Director "to expedite action on the reforms contained in the initial presidential directives on GYEEDA to pave the way for implementation of modules that would create job opportunities for the youth."

GYEEDA has been fraught with a litany of corruption allegations which led to various probes that resulted in a freeze of the programme. Major recommendations were made for the programme to be restructured.
