‘Use Fashion To Reduce Unemployment’


The Head of the Fashion Department at Radford University College, Accra, Yvon Ntiamoah, says the university is poised in turning out graduates keen on transforming the economy through skills development, training and entrepreneurship.

Mrs Ntiamoah emphasized entrepreneurship as the focus of the department, stressing, ‘We are keen on producing job creators rather than job seekers to reduce the disturbing figures of unemployment.’

What the economy lacked, she explained, was curricula designed to absorb the thousands of youth automatically into the job market, who would in turn, engage others to reduce the over-reliance on government as the highest employer in the country.

Dr Paul Effah, President of Radford, said the university was tapping into the use of local fabrics to boost the economy, and give definition and meaning to economic domestication.

The two were speaking at the presentation of 130 assorted prints by Woodin to the university at a short ceremony at its premises at East Legon, Accra.

The Product Director  of Woodin, Baaba Wusu-Ansah, said the company shared strides of the university in the fashion industry within a relatively short period of time, notably the annual fashion show which brings key industry players and students together to explore avenues of job creation, while remaining competitive at the continental and global stage.
