Youth Employment Agency: 282 toll workers with disabilities employed

Stories and facts

The Secretary of the Toll Workers with Disabilities has refuted claims that the Youth Employment Agency (YEA) has not employed any of its members. The Ghana Toll Workers Association initially challenged the YEA's announcement of recruiting 282 persons with disabilities, calling it false.

During a press launch in Accra on February 22, the CEO of the YEA, Kofi Baah Agyepong, declared the government's intention to employ former toll workers to offer them financial stability and a chance to contribute to disability rights policies.

In response, the toll workers denied being engaged by the government. However, Ametor Ellah, secretary of the PWD toll workers, confirmed that he and some colleagues have indeed been employed by the YEA.

He clarified, "I want to let you know that it is not true that some of our people have not been employed based on their qualifications. They were asking for qualifications from SHS to degree level. Some of them have been employed, and I have personally been employed. I was called for an interview, and I was told that my appointment letter is ready."
