A draft bill expected to regulate the operation of the Ghana Youth Employment and Entrepreneurial Development Agency (GYEEDA) programme has been passed into law by parliament.

The law aims to employ about hundred thousand youth under various modules. The bill faced back and forth challenges in Parliament regarding issues surrounding the source of funding for the programme.

The law would restructure the scandal laden GYEEDA and provide for the establishment of a Youth Employment Fund which is intended to support youth development through skills training and internship.

Employment and Labour Relations Minister, Haruna Iddrisu moving the motion for the passage of the bill on the floor of the House said the revamped Youth Employment Agency (YEA) has an employment capacity of between 45,000 to 100,000 youths.

According to the minister, the law will make the youth oriented programme more robust and efficient.
