Former President and the flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress, (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has commended Ghanaian workers and workers around the world for your untiring and immense sacrifices from dawn to dusk, all year round. This was in a statement he issued on his Facebook page.
“Through your toils, over the years, we have added to the gains of our forebears. I am, however, aware of the present harsh and hard socioeconomic environment within which so much is still expected of you. “
“In addition, I am aware of the unprecedented insecurity in our country, which is becoming a major threat to foreign and domestic investment in our economy.” He wrote.
According to Mr. Mahama, “Like many disappointed Ghanaians including yourselves, I am also aware of the numerous unfulfilled promises of this government, which has led to the twin phenomenon of massive job losses and massive unemployment.
”He has encouraged all gallant workers and all citizens, not to despair, give up.
“Let’s keep hope alive and pray for better times in the coming years.”
He further promise to be truthful, selfless and offer dedicated leadership, to improve the wellbeing and security of all Ghanaians.
“Let me also remind government of the overarching need to work conscientiously towards the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and in this particular case, Goal 8, which calls for the promotion of sustainable economic growth and decent work for all….Happy May Day!” The statement concluded.
