The UG graduate went viral recently after a photo of him standing by the roadside begging for a job surfaced. He held up a placard with his name, degree and phone number on it, begging for a job.

A photo of his which was posted online quickly went viral and sparked conversations.

It once again threw a spotlight on the issue of graduate unemployment, which is one of the biggest problems facing the youth of this country.

Our leaders have shown zero interest in solving this issue, forcing young Ghanaians to resort to such drastic measures if they don’t want to become a burden on their families after graduating college.
