President Akufo-Addo has charged the newly inaugurated Governing Council of the Social Partnership Agreement to support government’s efforts aimed at transforming the country from economic dependence to one totally independent of aid and handouts.

Speaking at the Jubilee House at a ceremony to swear-in the twenty member Council, President Akufo-Addo said never again should Ghana run to the IMF for the 17th time for bailout.

He was optimistic the social partnership agreement will help maintain industrial peace, promote productivity and ensure shared prosperity.

Government early this year, signed a Social Partnership Agreement with organized labour and employers to provide a platform for reaching a national consensus on transformation and development issues.

It provides a mechanism for building a sense of cohesion, trust and self management through frank and open discussions about mutual sacrifices and contributions from all stakeholders to champion the course of Ghana’s development.

President Akufo-Addo said the Social Partnership is an important institutional mechanism to help the country achieve economic growth and independence in order not to return to the (IMF) for any form of support or bailout.

Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta, who doubles as the Chairman of the Council, was optimistic the Council will achieve its stated objective.

The other members include the Deputy Minister of Finance, Abena Osei-Asare, Minister of Employment and Labour Relations, Ignatius Baffour Awuah and Secretary General of the TUC, Dr Yaw Baah.
