Akufo-Addo Hasn’t Changed; He Just Needs Time To Fix The Country – Gideon Boako To Ghanaians

Fix The Country

 Politics.

” . . Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo hasn’t changed. He’s the same Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo,” Dr. Gideon Boako, Spokesperson for Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has told Ghanaians.

According to Dr. Gideon Boako, President Nana Akufo-Addo will need time to fix the country stressing his second term just began.

Making his submissions on Peace FM’s ‘Kokrokoo’ programme, he asked Ghanaians not to lose sight of the good works of the President in his first term, citing some good policies like the free SHS, payment of allowances among others.

Dr. Gideon Boako also reminded Ghanaians of the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic on world economies, for which Ghana has also been badly affected and therefore will take a gradual process to get the nation back on her feet.

He, however, empathized with Ghanaians over their plight but believed the President is on the right track to improving their living conditions.

He called on them to exercise patience with the President saying ” . . Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo hasn’t changed. He’s the same Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. It’s the same Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and the same government that had the good heart to improve the lives of the citizenry that is in power again…and is in action to adopt good policies to continue improving the lives of the people.”

Passing Wages And Salary Policy Will Curb Businesses Paying ‘Slave Salaries’ – Kofi Amoah

Economist and businessman, Dr Kofi Amoah has bemoaned the manner in which some businesses in the country pay their employees ‘slave salaries’ at the end of the month.

Dr Amoah said it’s unfair that some of the businesses are making profits yet do not give their staff living wages.

According to him, employees must know their worth and decry such injustice meted out to them.

Additionally, he said business owners that can not pay living wages to any of their employees must go out of business.

“We should all become interested in the level of salary and wages that we pay to Ghanaian workers…we are paying slave wages.

“If someone is being paid ¢400 a month; they have to pay their own transport in and out when you calculate depending on where they live, the ¢400 half of it will be into transportation. They haven’t eaten lunch, they haven’t eaten breakfast,” he lamented.

As a businessman, Dr Amoah said he didn’t feel proud to be Ghanaian because of some of the inequality that exists in society.

According to the economist, he would rather everyone was rising to the top of the financial ladder while gaining opportunities in life.

“I would like to see Ghana rise in a meaningful way,” he said.

“In our society, I think the class structure is very bad, people like you and me, educated, we have a job, look at your suit, somebody’s monthly salary can not pay for that silk tie. It is not your fault, you deserve it, but why shouldn’t we allow other people to deserve it?” he quizzed.

That notwithstanding, Mr Amoah advised that as a country, the only way the situation can be rectified is to pass wages and salary policy that mandates employers to give their employees living wages.

In his view, “policy drives the success and progress of a nation. We have to understand what we need to do as a society and the kind of policy we must have that will create opportunities for people.”

And according to Dr Amoah, a good policy must make provisions for workers to have access to living wages and salaries to be able to take care of their families.

“What is the point in going to work every day but at the end of the month what they give you doesn’t make sense. we should all decry that kind of society.”Tags:   Dr. Kofi Amoah Salary Wages
