I’ll provide jobs for land guards – Ishmael Ashitey
Greater Accra Regional Minister Nominee, Ishamel
Ashitey has said he will provide jobs for the
teeming unemployed youth to prevent them for
engaging in illegal activities, when approved by
Parliament’s Appointments Committee.

He believes illegal activities, including the land
guard menace is rife especially in the Greater
Accra Region because most of the youth in the
region are unemployed.

“People are taking advantage of these young men
because they do not have jobs. That is why I am so
happy with the one district, one factory
policy.When we are able to give these people
gainful employment, I think we will be able to
reduce this land guard menace. “

The land guard menace is rife especially in the
Greater Accra Region, where those involved are
solely interested in safeguarding their
paymasters’ interest in disputed lands.

In June 2013, Members of Parliament appealed to
the Ghana Police Service to launch an all out war
to eradicate the menace of land guards in the
country but the problem is yet to be resolved.

About Ishmael Ashietey

Ishmael Ashitey is 62 years old and is a product
of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and
Technology, where he graduated in 1977 with a
Diploma in Mechanical Engineering. He also holds
an Executive Master’s degree in Governance and
Leadership from GIMPA.

He worked as a Mechanical Engineer at the Accra
Brewery Limited for 13 years.

He served as Member of Parliament for Tema East
from 1996 to 2008, and between that period, he
was, first, appointed as Minister of State for
Fisheries from 2001 to 2003 by former President
John Agyekum Kufuor. From 2003 to 2004, he was a
Minister of State for Trade and Industry.

While in Parliament, he was the Deputy Ranking
Member on the Mines and Energy Committee, a Member
of the Foreign Affairs Committee, Member on the
Committee on Communications and Chairman of the
Government Assurances Committee.

He has been the Greater Accra Regional Chairman of
the New Patriotic Party from 2010 to date. He is
married with four children.
