President of the republic, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo, has said, his administration is focusing on ending labor agitations, especially in the education sector.
The delay in payment of salaries and allowances has been a major concern teacher unions in Ghana have been raising since the NPP got elected.
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 the president, 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.
However, teachers all over the country have warned the government of an impending nationwide demonstration if concerns over poor working conditions are not addressed.
