“When I came to power, I left most of these public sector workers but when this [NPP] government took over, they dismissed them, and this is a bad precedent for our governance because potentially government can change in every four years so if another government takes over, it means all those working in the public sector have to be dismissed for a new crop of employees to take over and this is bad for governance.”

Mr Mahama first slammed his successor for mass sacking of workers in a tweet last month.

He said act saying it is unacceptable for the government to dismiss workers.

"Bad precedents for our governance. Mass sacking of workers by the NPP govt unacceptable," he tweeted. These workers are all citizens and like all Ghanaians have rights, which must be protected."
