Our economy is a big mess so I can’t promise everybody a salary increment — Mahama to teachers

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer, John Mahama, has declared that, in contrast to the administration of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), which is composed of Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo-Addo, he will not make promises that he cannot keep.

He believes that the economy is currently in a terrible situation.

Mahama stressed his resolve to stay away from making promises he can’t keep, in contrast to the NPP administration.

He made this statement in response to pre-tertiary teachers’ common concerns about the negative consequences of lacking basic amenities for teaching and learning.

During his “Building Ghana We Want Together Tour,” Mahama addressed a Town Hall meeting in Tamale and made it clear that he would never take on obligations he couldn’t fulfill in light of the country’s current economic difficulties.

He outlined other unfulfilled promises made by the Akufo-Addo-Bawumia-led government, including the failure to build factories and dams in all of the districts.

He suggested that, if elected, his administration provide accommodation help to pre-tertiary teachers in light of the current conditions.

The objective is to incentivize people to remain on campus, minimize superfluous spending, and cultivate an atmosphere that supports their best work output.

Mahama said “I’ve said that the economy is in a big mess, so I cannot promise everybody I’m going to increase salary and all that. I won’t be like those dishonest people who came to promise heaven that they will build factories in every district, they’ll build a dam in every village, I’m not that kind of person. So I cannot promise you that I’m going to increase your salary.”

“And so we have taken note of the difficulties pre-tertiary teachers are going through, and I’ve suggested some of the solutions, and one is that we’ll help with accommodation in schools so that more teachers can stay in school.”
