The government faces frustrating levels of unemployment and the NPP promise to provide jobs was one of the central issues in the 2016 general elections.

Daniel Agyenim Boateng was appointed in July 2017 but before he could assume office, another, Nicholas Oduro was also appointed to the same post.
