The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), has called on President Akufo-Addo to address the pertinent challenges affecting workers in the country.
According to the NDC, ‘workers are the engines of societies’, and therefore the need for government to promptly resolve the difficulties they encounter.
In a statement signed by the NDC’s National Chairman, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, the NDC applauded the contributions of workers in the country and urged them to continue their service to the nation.
The party reiterated its commitment to bettering the lot of Ghanaians if they win the upcoming 2024 general elections.
“As we join all workers to mark this auspicious day, we want to assure them that upon the ascension of power by the NDC in January, 2025, the pains and sorrow of the workers of Ghana will receive our utmost focus and attention.
We know that when workers are happy and satisfied, this country’s level of productivity will increase by leaps and bounds, and all our citizens will be the beneficiaries.
As we celebrate our workers for their commitment and dedication to duty, we also hail them for their unflinching love for Ghana. Ghana workers, AYEKOO”, the statement emphasized.
Meanwhile, former President John Dramani Mahama has joined May Day well-wishers to celebrate the contribution of Ghana’s labour force to the development of the country.
Taking to his Facebook account, the former President described Ghana’s labour force as the engine that propels the country and keeps it afloat.
“In periods of great economic strife and hopelessness, it is you who come to the peoples’ rescue and provide the needed inspiration and industry to get the state back on the path of recovery,” he said.
He expressed hope that even as the country goes through a tough economic patch, “your unconquerable spirit of resilience and service will lift us out of our present gloom.”
“And this is why you remain our eternal heroes and heroines,” he concluded.
