The Head of the Department of Finance at the University of Ghana, Professor Godfred Bokpin says for government to achieve its 2018 Budget objective of creating one hundred thousand jobs, it must create the enabling environment for the private sector to operate smoothly and expand to employ more.

He said successive governments' have failed to empower private industries with favorable laws and this has affected their recruitment drive.

Speaking on GBC's Current Affairs Program Talking Point, Prof Bokpin advised the private sector to be abreast with government's flagship programs such as the Planting for Food and Jobs and then tap into those opportunities.
