Mr. Iddrisu said that it was the intention of the government to roll out 5,000 persons, mainly unskilled people, and these would include â€˜kayayeiâ€™ among others.
This is being done as a tripartite collaboration among the Ministry of Gender and Social Protection; the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations and other textile and apparel companies that will employ 3,000 youth.
He said that the move formed part of the Presidentâ€™s quest to transform the textile and apparel sector because he identifies the apparel and textile sector as a catalyst to spearhead his industrial revolution.
Of the 5,000 to be absorbed, he said that they expect Dignity to take about 2,000 who will be YEA interns to be trained into skilled people.
