A group of young unemployed graduate have vowed to use all means including taking legal action against Benjamin Gyawu- Appiah, an aid to Kennedy Agyepong if he fails to refund over GHC 50,000.00 to them on the pretext of providing them jobs in some high profile Institutions.
The affected victims in an interview said they have been short changed and deceived by the NPP and some of it’s functionaries since December 2018 despite several calls to help them get jobs even after collecting huge sums of money from them.
Information gathered shows that Benjamin Appiah-Gyawu who is said to be an aid to Kennedy Agyepong collected various sums of money ranging from GhC3,000.00 to 8000.00 to provide them jobs.
Our checks shows that all the money paid amounted to over GhC50.000.00 with a minimum payment amount of GhC3,000.00
According to the young men, they said Benjamin Gyawu- Appiah, a law student promised to provide them permanent and contract paid jobs by March 2019 in the following organisations; VRA, GNPC, Ghana Gas, BOST among others.
The pay-in slips cited by the investigation team indicated that the unemployed graduates paid monies into Stanbic bank account number 9040006708042 Kasoa Branch as far back as 28th November, December 2018 and January 2019.
The young men have expressed their disappointment in the NPP government and the corrupt activities exhibited by some party bigwigs who are using the corridors of power to rob and extort monies from them after their fruitless search for jobs over the years.
When Ben Gyawu- Appiah was contacted on the matter. He admitted collecting money to secure them jobs but however said he acted as a facilitator for other bigwigs in the NPP Government who promised to find jobs for these young unemployed graduates. He further stated that even though he promised to help them get jobs, ‘getting jobs do not come easily but requires patience and time’.
One of the affected victims the news team spoke to said ” I had to go for a loan with interest with the hope of paying back after securing a job but these two people have failed to get me the job as promised. It’s a year now since I paid that amount of money. I need my money and he cannot take me for a fool. I will deal with them”.
They have therefore vowed to use all means including taken legal action against Ben Gyawu and his accomplices to retrieve their money if he fails to refund the money within the shortest possible time.
