CR-NDC Salutes Workers On May Day
As workers worldwide observe the 1st of May, as the day set aside to honour the contribution of workers to nation-building; leadership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Central Region, salutes all Workers and appreciate the collective as well as the enormous contribution to helping build a Better Ghana even in the face of COVID-19 pandemic.
In spite of the many challenges that continue to confront us as a Nation under the leadership of the non-performing NPP Govt; workers from all facets of the workforce remain relentless and undaunted, and we say a big Ayekoo to all workers particularly our fisherfolks, farmers, traders, drivers, staff of our public universities who have been or are being victimized as a result of the attack on academic freedom by this Govt, public servants, private-sector workers who are most affected by this pandemic, our miners, our security personnel and all workers.
We in CR-NDC share the deep concern embedded in the recent call by Labour to the Government to pay close attention to the creeping unacceptable practice of some employers deliberately keeping workers as casual employees and therefore denying them the stable mindset to operate at the workplace and solemnly call on workers to continue having faith with us because the NDC Govt of John Mahama will never shy away from the genuine and legitimate concerns of Labour.
However, we call on the Government not to shirk its responsibilities towards Labour hence the need for a swift response to the concerns of Labour especially during these harsh economic times occasioned by the handling of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Ayekoo once again to all Workers on this special day, and there is no gainsaying the fact that the NDC remains stoically committed to broadening and deepening the frontiers of Labour in Ghana.
Ghana is the only country we have: and we must all put our shoulders to the wheel and strive continuously towards building a Better Ghana.
May God continues to hold us together as a Nation; and may we never waiver from our civic duties particularly workers at the independent constitutional bodies.
