The Opposition National Democratic Congress NDC have emphasised their commitment to ensuring the welfare of all professional teachers in the country.
However, the opposition National Democratic Congress NDC communication team member, Ahmed Agbenyadzi speaking in an interview on Bryt FM on Political Show on the 15th of January 2022 indicated that the party since independence gave chalked the many beneficial packages they have rolled out for the teachers notably, in terms of increasing salaries of teachers.
Furthermore, Ahmed Agbenyadzi again added that the opposition National Democratic Congress NDC has crafted and implemented some favourable policies in the Fourth Republic that have positively affected teaching and learning in the country.
“My brother, the NDC is the only political party in our Ghanaian history since independence and it is a fact that no one can challenge. The Mahama-led NDC increased salaries of teachers by 10%, the highest in Ghana’s history” he said.
Additionally, Ahmed Agbenyadzi who is also the Akwapem North Deputy Youth Organiser, therefore, disclosed that, the National Democratic Congress NDC party believed so much in Ghana in the country and that many good policies were put in place during the tenure of office of the party to ensure smooth teaching and learning among the teachers and students as well.
Therefore, the NDC communication Team member on that note accuses the incumbent New Patriotic Party NPP of the many challenges and difficulties according to them facing the educational system in the country.
He further rained numerous blames on President Nana Akufo Addo and his party plus his government for what he deemed as ‘poor’ free Senior High School SHS policy implemented and that have therefore magnetised the many difficulties in the country because of its porous nature.
On that note, Ahmed Agbenyadzi, therefore, assured all professional teachers in the country to have faith in the National Democratic Congress NDC and to pray for its returns as they will put down initiatives that will encourage teaches in ensuring that it positively affect the teaching and learning in the country.
