The leader of the opposition Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG), Mr. Kofi Akpaloo has called on the Nana Akufo-Addo led government to consider increasing the salary of Ghanaian teachers instead of deceiving them with allowances.
Speaking in an interview with Kingdom 107.7 FM monitored by Educationweb.com.gh, the politician said teachers continue to work in poor conditions, yet they receive low salaries and are not acknowledged.
According to him, claims by the politicians to improve the welfare of Ghanaian teachers are all lip service, an act he urged them to stop and consider the poor conditions of the teachers and help them.
Some have to “walk several kilometers to school because they have no means of transport”, Mr. Percival Kofi Akpaloo told Reynold Agyemang, the host of the ‘Pae Mu Ka’ show on the Accra-based radio station.
Meanwhile, Samuel Nii Noi Ashong, a Technical Advisor for the Ministry of Finance has said there will be no salary increment for public sector workers including public teachers until 2024 because the country is broke.
