The Concerned Voters Movement (CVM), has stated that the government through the prudent management of the economy is fulfilling the expectations of the citizenry.
It said the government had reduced the suffering of its workers including teachers and lecturers through the prompt payment of salaries, arrears, research and book allowances.
A statement signed and issued by Razak Kojo Opoku, Founder and President of the Movement, said the president had also reduced the plight of teacher and nursing trainees by restoring their allowances and providing employment to more than 54,000 nurses.
It said the government had also provided 275 Ambulances for each constituency, paid arrears of the National Health Insurance Service providers, digitised the economy, and stabilised the Cedi among other interventions.
The statement said pensioners also benefitted through the payment of GH₵3.1 billion Tier-2 pension funds into the custodial accounts of labour unions pension schemes and funds that had been outstanding for six years, and improved services at various sectors of the economy.
It said the completion of the Mother and Baby Unit at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, the Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty, the provision of free water and electricity, and free food to the vulnerable in areas affected by the partial lockdown were commendable and called on the citizenry to add four more years to President Nana Akufo-Addo’s term to continue with the good works to continue to ameliorate the plight of the citizenry. -GNA
