- Nana Addo says salaries and allowances of teachers will be paid on time
- Teacher unions are threatening strikes over poor conditions of services
President of the republic, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo, says his administration is focused on ending labour agitations, especially in the education sector.
One of the main concerns teacher unions have raised since the NPP got elected has been the delay in payment of salaries and allowances.
But speaking at the 80th-anniversary celebration of the Abuakwa State College, the president revealed that he is committed to paying salaries in time.
According to Nana Addo, plans are currently underway to rid the system of all the challenges that cause hiccups during payment as part of efforts to improve the welfare of all teachers.
“We will concentrate on incentives that will motivate teachers and reward their hard work. [We’ll] ensure that teachers’ salaries and allowances are paid regularly and on time,” Nana Ado revealed.
Teachers all over the country have warned the government of an imminent nationwide demonstration if concerns over poor working conditions are not addressed.
Meanwhile, the government has revealed plans to boost the quality and affordability of education in the country. The recently launched "free shs" program is aimed at providing affordable basic education for thousands of students across the country.
