PSWU Appeal To Government Stop To Involving Politics Into Public Sector.

Published

on

The Acting General Secretary of public service workers union (PSWU) Mr Bernard Adjei has appealed to the government to stop involving politics in public sectors.

Politics in government sectors are the main causes of lack of development in the country, instead of every ruling government maintaining the workers in the various public institutions, they will rather follow their political interest to recruit people with no qualification and competency in the system for bad development.

“The most sad thing in the system is that, qualified and competent people are in this country without employment yet they cannot secure one because their party is in opposition, due to the politics in our system. The government must step up because the politics in public sector is our major challenge”, he said.

He therefore noted that public service’s priority measures and sustainable development will only be achieved if the government ostensibly step up the funding needed to address their major challenge from poverty and inequalities.

Moreover, several range from presenting conflict resolution to government on the issues of wages, workers, health, education, safety and proposing alternative to privitazation or paternership within the sector to standing in solidarity with workers hint by dismissal and supporting government for a peaceful society overall by rallying workers and the public to uphold tolerance.

Privatization is used to weak union collective agreements, drive down wages & labours condition and introduce precarious work.

He made this known during the 60th celebration of public service workers union and Trade Union Congress anniversary and to decades to all public service workers.

The government is to establish Model Senior High Schools (SHSs) in all Zongo communities across the country, the Vice President Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia announced on Friday.

He emphasized quality education was key to a successful life, hence it was imperative to make SHS education easily accessible to Muslims in the country.

Dr. Bawumia said very soon Zongo communities would realise the fruits of the Zongo Development Fund and witness remarkable improvement in their socio-economic lives.

The Vice President gave the announcement when he addressed the chiefs and people of Wamfie in the Dormaa East and Nkrankwanta in the Dormaa West Districts at separate durbars, as part of his two-day working visit to the Bono Region.

Alhaji Dr. Bawumia noted though the previous National Democratic Congress (NDC) government nearly collapsed it, the national economy had been resuscitated due to the implementation of sound and pragmatic economic policies by the President Akufo-Addo’s government.

He said the government had successfully repaid cash deposits of 85,000 out of the 88,000 customers of the defunct ‘DKM’ microfinance company whose monies were locked up.

Alhaji Dr. Bawumia promised all customers whose monies were locked up would receive their cash deposits, and advised them to exercise patience and cooperate with the official liquidator.

Barimah Dei Kusi Gyabaah, the chief of Amasu in the Dormaa Central Municipality and Ankobeahene of Dormaa Traditional Area, appealed for the reshaping of the Nkrankwanta town roads.

He appealed to the government to stock the Nkrankwanta Polyclinic with medical devices and also provide a tertiary institution to enhance the growth and development of education in the area.

‘I’m not like those who cut sods without funding’ -Akufo-Addo

Published

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo says he secured funding for every project undertaken under his administration since assuming office.

President Akufo-Addo made this known at Enchi during day 2 of his 3-day tour of the Western North Region, where he cut the sod for the construction of the 71.25-kilometre Enchi to Elubo road, which will cost $116.2 million.

“When I came here a year ago, I assured the Chiefs and people that I will work hard to ensure that the Enchi to Elubo road commences. There were a number of processes, like the contractor and funding sources, that had to be completed before today’s ceremony could take place. All those processes have been successfully completed”

“I am not like some people who rush to cut sods without securing the requisite funding for the projects. I will never do that. When I cut the sod, it means all the processes have been completed and the money for the project is available. I am not out to deceive anyone,” he said.

Touching on the creation of the Western North Region, the President told the gathering that the equitable distribution of development and resources was one of the reasons that necessitated the creation of the region.

He further indicated that the Government had taken the decision to situate offices of the Departments and Agencies in all parts of the region.

He said construction is ongoing for the Regional Education Directorate which will be in Bibiani, as well as the Regional Agriculture Directorate in Juaboso, the Regional Feeder Roads in Aowin, and the Regional Highways Department in Sefwi Wiawso, the capital of the Region.

President Akufo-Addo, therefore, appealed to the people of Aowin to vote massively for him and the NPP’s parliamentary candidate in order to “do more.”
