Wa, Nov. 26, GNA - Government is doing everything possible to ensure that salary and all the other problems confronting Polytechnic teachers are solved within the next few weeks, Mr George Hikah Benson, Deputy Upper West Regional Minister has said.
He said the government had ensured the enactment of the new Labour Law and the establishment of a National Labour Commission to address the problems of workers and would therefore not relent in its efforts to make every Ghanaian worker happy and comfortable.
Mr Benson said this during the third matriculation ceremony of the Wa Polytechnic held at Wa on Saturday.
A total of 170 students who were admitted to study HND Accountancy, HND Secretaryship, HND Agricultural Engineering and Diploma in Business Studies were matriculated at the function. He said the country was going through the joy of democracy and constitutional rule and would therefore welcome suggestions that would facilitate governance.
Mr Benson advised workers against the use of strikes and demonstrations as their channels of redressing their grievances. Professor Sampson K. Agodzo, Principal of Polytechnic said more programmes such as Mechanical Engineering, Automobile Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Building Technology and Estate Management would be introduced as soon as the permanent buildings of the school were completed.
He commended the governments of Ghana, The Netherlands, Spain and Canada for their continued support for the school and promised to make judicious use of whatever was given the school to make it one of the best in the country.
The Principal warned the students against indulging in immoral behaviour, but to strive to gain the best education from the school.
