Beneficiaries of the Ghana Youth Employment and Entrepreneurial Development Agency formerly the NYEP will now be paid with the e-zwich system.
XYZ Business has learnt that President Mahama has issued a directive to that effect.
It follows reports that government is losing millions of cedis through ghost payments and misappropriation of funds by some mangers of the program.
Information and Media Relations Minister Mahama Ayariga told XYZ Business that the Finance Ministry is working on the modalities.
“The President also gave a directive regarding the payments of National Youth Employment and said that they should start using e-zwich,” he said.
Mr. Ayariga added that government has also designed a comprehensive program to end the unprecedented wave of labour agitations.
