The CEO of Best Ophar Construction Firm, Mr Victor Atsu Occansey has urged the Ghanaian Youth to make an effort to create their jobs adding that, the youths must become entrepreneurs rather than depend on the government for employment opportunities.

Mr Victor Atsu Occansey emphasized that ''you should not think of obtaining salary only, but rather think of becoming entrepreneurs to open businesses for others to be employed."

He indicates that ''to obtain your own business is more sustainable than depending on government for employment where salary is what sustains your living."

Speaking to the media, Mr Atsu stated that, ''globally, the rich people are mostly private individuals who are entrepreneurs and such people are not from the public sector.

According to him, government alone cannot absorb the unemployment situation in the country hence, this is the time for the unemployed youth to endeavour to create their businesses. They can acquire skills in the TVET space, this includes; painting, masonry, carpentry, catering, plumbing and other entrepreneurial skills to make them self-reliant."

He stressed that "they must do away with poverty aspirations that will blind them from seeing opportunities. Youths must grab all available means to pursue their dreams.

Mr Atsu, therefore, compared his life and said, ''I started my own business from painting and designing through which I now own a big construction firm, so I urged the unemployed graduates to accept the challenge to venture into employable skills and programs that will expose them into entrepreneurship with major opportunities.
