Prof, Ameyaw Akumfi visits families of Ejura shootings; Youths blame disturbances on lack of education and jobs

As the Ministerial Committee instituted by Government continue to probe into the Ejura shooting incident which resulted to the loss of lives and several degrees of injuries, youths of the town have blamed the riots on lack of education and activity (jobs) hence calling on authority to get them something doing.

A youth activist at Ejura Abdullahi Abubakar also a senior Brother of Abdul Nasir who died alongside Muntallah Mohammed during a protest following the attack and death of one Ibrahim Muhammed alias “Kaaka” on 29th June, 2021 who made this revelation noted that the youths of the area lack good education or employable skills which denies them access to formal jobs at Government agencies or private sectors.

According to Abdullahi Abubakar, the sad thing is that menial jobs which the youths used to do at the defunct Ejura Farms and other Processing Companies are all no more; hence “the devil finds work for idle hands”, this he observed could prevent future reoccurrences of riots in Ejura and Ghana as a whole hence Government should act fast.

These revelations came to light when Professor Christopher Ameyaw Akumfi, Board Chairman of Ghana Infrastructure Fund accompanied by NPP Constituency Executives from Atebubu and Ejura visited to console affected families of the incidents where he assured all to believe in the President of Ghana Nana Akuffo Addo to do justice to the report of the Committee of Inquiry after their investigations.
