Public sector workers in Ghana should expect to receive their salaries every two weeks instead of the current situation where they are paid monthly; if Independent Presidential Candidate, Alfred Kwame Aseidu Walker wins this year’s general election.
Mr. Walker made this promise on Friday, when he paid a courtesy call on the Techiman Traditional Council as part of his one week campaign tour of the Bono, Ahafo, Ashanti and Northern regions.
The only Independent Candidate in the presidential race noted that the one-month salary system Ghana has practiced over the years has brought unbearable hardship on many workers especially in the middle of each month, a situation he observed compels people to borrow monies to sustain themselves for the rest of the month.
He therefore called on Ghanaians to ignore the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and vote massively for him in the upcoming elections to bring about the needed positive changes in their lives.
Mr. Walker in many of his campaign speeches has reportedly stated that sustainable job creation, women empowerment, decent accommodation for the poor, modernizing waste management, abolishing okada, among other things, remain crucial to him if he is voted into power.
According to him, he intends to utilize the expertise, skill and knowledge of all qualified Ghanaians irrespective of political colours in his government.
Aside from that, the number 12 man on the presidential ballot paper has indicated that his government will involve Ghanaians in the diaspora in building a robust economy.
Mr. Walker is being accompanied on his campaign tour by his running mate, Joseph Osei Yeboah, also known as JOY; who contested the last two elections as a independent candidate.
Spokesperson for the President of the Techiman Traditional Council Omanhene Osei Ameyaw Ekumfi, commended Mr. Walker for what was said to be his brilliant policies and wished him well in his quest to lead the country.
