Just 2 Months In Office, President Akufo-Addo Has Sacked 23,000 Ghanaian Workers

After promising to create jobs for the unemployed during his campaign
last year, it has now emerged that President Akufo-Addo and his
government has instead sacked 23,000 Ghanaian workers in its first two
months in office.
This was revealed by NDC Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Hon
Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa during a debate in Parliament on President
Akufo-Addo’s maiden State of the Nation Address.
According to him, the Akufo-Addo government in February this year sacked
205 workers at the National Service Scheme who were employed in
December 2016 by the Mahama administration with the excuse that their
recruitments did not follow due process.
It was noted that Government also dismissed 525 officials at the
National Security alleging they were members of NDC, and 206 police
recruits for allegedly using forged certificates. 
This exercise was extended to the health sector where government
canceled clearance given last year by the Mahama administration for the
recruitment of 8600 nurses by the Ghana Health Service.

According to Ghana Web, the unprecedented job loss was as a result of
the Akufo-Addo government’s vow to cancel all appointments and clearance
for employment by the erstwhile Mahama administration described as
‘last minute’.
