Organized Labour has stated that the continuous change in power between the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is slowing the development of Ghana. According to Dr Anthony Yaw Baah, Secretary-General of the Ghana Trades Union Congress (TUC) and spokesperson for Organised Labour, civil society must develop a roadmap for Ghana to sustain development. “Political party manifestos rule this country and then this party comes and throws away all the projects under the previous government,” he observed.

Dr Yaw Baah made the remarks on Thursday, April 20 during a discussion on pensions in Accra. The discussions aim to firm up a decision by Organised Labour regarding the new proposal by the government on an alternative debt restructuring programme believed to be another domestic debt exchange programme (DDEP).

The Finance Ministry has already written to the Board of Trustees of the Pensions Fund to participate in this programme. Dr Yaw Baah stressed that the meeting was not only about the present but the future as well. “If you look at those who are retired, who are on pension, they will not be up to 300,000 and just a small percentage are women and these are issues that we need to look at as labour,” he added.

In conclusion, Dr Yaw Baah urged civil society to develop a roadmap for the country’s sustainable development. It is high time for Ghana to make progress in terms of development irrespective of which party is in power. The continuous change in power between the two main political parties of Ghana is a threat to the nation’s development.
