The 2016 presidential candidate of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP,) Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom, has said that a government led by him will ensure that the salaries of teachers are not delayed.

At a meeting with the leadership and some staff of the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) in Accra he explained that if the staff of his company are paid on time it means he can replicate it if he becomes president.

“The only reason why government will delay in paying salaries is when there is no money. The technology is there to ensure swift payment.”

He also assured that newly recruited teachers will start receiving the salaries a month after they have been employed.

For some years now teacher unions in the country have been demanding government to pay them their salary arrears as well as re-introducing the trainee allowance that has been scrapped.

This has led to a number of demonstrations and strike actions in the country.

However Dr Nduom said every other concern of teachers which include accommodation and teacher trainee allowance will be given attention for a better education system.

He revealed that a research conducted by the PPP has shown what measures can be taken to make education free, compulsory and continuous in Ghana.

“On ensuring that education is compulsory, I will introduce education guards who will ensure that children of school-going age do not loiter about. This is what my opponents are not talking about.”
