National Co-ordinator of the NYEP, Abuga Pele It has emerged that some district co-ordinators of the National Youth Employment Programme (NYEP)?are illegally recruiting unemployed people into the programme.
Two such co-ordinators in the Ashanti and Central Regions have been dismissed while another is on suspension, for the various roles they played in ensuring the recruitment of some youth into the programme without due process.
The National Co-ordinator of the NYEP, Mr Abuga Pele, who is worried about the development, told graphic.com.gh that a taskforce of 200 people was illegally set up in the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly in the name of the NYEP. He said investigation of the issue, accounted for the dismissal of the Deputy Ashanti Regional Co-ordinator of the programme.
In the recent past, some co-ordinators were reported to have indulged in the sale of NYEP forms to applicants, a crime punishable by law for the fact that the forms are the property of the Government of Ghana and thus, not for sale.
Mr Pele served notice that any officer of the programme engaged in acts that had the tendency to compromise the credibility of the programme would be dealt with according to law, stressing that the NYEP was the flagship programme of the government designed to reduce unemployment among the youth.
He suspected that some youth who had threatened to hit the streets in protest against the delay in the payment of their allowances, were probably, not genuine beneficiaries of the programme and therefore called on such people to personally hold those who recruited them responsible for their allowances.

Mr Pele said the exit plan is being implemented to ensure that beneficiaries leaving the programme after the two-year mandatory service are supported to obtain permanent employment or pursue further education.

Accra, Jan. 11, GNA - An exit programme is being arranged for beneficiaries of the National Youth Employment Programme (NYEP) to enable them to stay in employment after their two-year service term ends, Mr Abuga Pele, National Coordinator of the Programme, said on Monday.
He told a press conference in Accra that arrangements being implemented in conjunction with the Ministries, Departments, Agencies and private institutions would ensure that the first batch of over 30,000 youth whose tenure ended in November last year would find something doing as their exit time started from December 2009.
He said for those in the teaching and health sectors a top-up programme was being arranged for them to further train them so they could be absorbed into the system after their training to continue to provide their invaluable services to the nation.
For those under the community police programme, a similar recruitment exercise was being put in place to recruit those who put up good behaviours in the mainstream security service and other private security agencies, he said.
Mr Pele said the rest would be placed under other areas of trade and vocations, adding that no beneficiaries with affiliation with the New Patriotic Party (NPP) or other political party were being sacked.
He said all beneficiaries with various political affiliations whose tenure had expired as put in place by the originators of the NYEP in 2006, were being involved in the exit programme.
Mr Pele noted that the current government intended to maintain the two-year term for beneficiaries of the programme and that a youth employment bill was soon to be laid before parliament to help streamline things, and also look at sources of funds to pay allowances of beneficiaries.
He gave the assurance that all allowances in arrears would be paid by the close of January to the beneficiaries, and warned those who had left the system but were still conniving with officials to take allowances to stop.
Mr Pele also dismissed the current figure of 45,000 beneficiaries as false, saying when careful counting was done the number might be about 30,000. GNA TMA/MI 11 Jan. 10
