Ghana Politics News-Former Deputy Ashanti Regional Minister with the erstwhile John Mahama administration Joseph Yammin has challenged President Akufo Addo to pay his appointees if the economy is not in crisis.
Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo says though there are difficulties, the economy is not in crisis.
It could be recalled that early this year 2018 District Chief Executives (DCEs) in Ashanti Region complained about their accumulated salary arrears.
According to them, government has refused to pay their one year salaries since their assumption of office in 2017.
Joseph Yammin speaking in an interview with Abusua Fm’s Osei Kwadwo urged President Akufo Addo to admit that Ghana’s economy is far from recovery.
Joseph Yammin insists President Akufo Addo’s government is unable to pay his numerous appointees since their appointment because the economy is in crisis.
“As I am talking to you now, government appointees are complaining over their arrears but they are afraid to come out. Since their appointment they have not been paid. President Akufo Addo should just admit that the economy is in crisis but not difficulties under his incompetent administration. I am challenging the President to pay his appointees if the economy is not in crisis” he said.
Joseph Yammin however appealed to Ghanaians to save Ghana from Nana Addo’s government by voting massively for NDC in the 2020 general elections.
