Michael Blackson discloses plans to reduce graduate unemployment
Michael Blackson, a Ghanaian-Liberian actor, philanthropist, and comedian based in the United States, has disclosed his plans to reduce graduate unemployment in the country with the construction of a factory estimated to give employment to 10,000 graduates in Ghana, Nigeria and Liberia.
In a tweet earlier today, January 23, the comedian who was in the news recently for commissioning an ultra-modern academy at Agona Nsaba in the Central Region of Ghana, noted that he will be seeking support from some folks in the US.
He, however, reiterated his commitments to build more schools in the coming years.
“I'm definitely building more schools for the less fortunate kids but for the adults I'm thinking about a few things. I'll talk to some folks in the states and see if we can build a huge factory that could employ about 10k or more college graduates in Ghana, Nigeria and Liberia (sic),” he tweeted.
The comedian has recently been active with his philanthropic ventures and the construction of the factory will add up to the list of projects he has embarked on and geared at improving the living conditions of people.
The recently commissioned ultra-modern academy at Agona Nsaba named after the actor will take students through lessons in tech, engineering, and sports facilities.
Michael Blackson is confident the academy will improve the quality of education in Agona Nsaba and its surrounding towns and communities.
