Akufo Addo’s Minister In Trouble For Attacking Teachers; Ghanaians Heavily Descend On Him -WATCH

After making disparaging remarks about striking teachers, one of President Akufo Addo's ministers was suspended, according to various news outlet.

He made his remarks following the fact that teachers had taken a leave of absence from the classroom in order to negotiate a COLA, or cost of living adjustment.

After Bright Wireko-statement Brobby's that the Akufo-Addo government compensated teachers who had no job to perform during Covid-19, the Deputy Minister of Employment and Labour Relations has received flak. His remarks came in the wake of the Pre-tertiary teachers' walkout.

On July 5, 2022, the Deputy Minister of Education urged teachers to negotiate with the government because they were paid for no work done during the Covid-19 era, according to a video that was posted on TV3.

Teacher unions have real concerns, but let me also point you that for nine months during the Covid outbreak, our teachers were at home, but the government continued to pay them. The government should be patient with the public if there is a global crisis today.

Some Ghanaians were apparently offended by the Deputy Employment Minister's remarks.

"Instead of trying to solve a new problem, try to understand what you're saying. What happened to you and your coworkers? That was during the epidemic phase, for goodness sake. User-generated content. A user wrote: "You are making things worse with your words."
