A Communicator with the National Democratic Congress in the Upper East Region, John Paul Danka has beseeched the government to rather use the neutrality allowance as requested by the Civil and Local Government Staff Association to pay single parents in the country.

The request, he said, will help them take good care of their children which would in return benefit the country build a strong human resource base.

“These children when the state empowers them well, in terms of their educations, and other benefits. They will grow to be responsible people in society. They will contribute not only to their mothers but to the state as well. Other countries are doing it, for instance, America like this, it’s a must that your child must go to school whether you have the resources or not. If you don’t have it, the state will do it for you including certain benefits for the child and the mother. Why can’t we use this money that these people are asking for as a neutrality allowance and start something like this? Look, every day, as a country, we keep losing our human resources due to someone’s inability to be responsible as a parent.”

Mr Danka made the call on the Day Break Upper East show on A1 Radio regarding the government’s plans to pay CLOGSAG, the neutrality allowance.

Meanwhile, the Ministries of Finance, Labour and Employment Relations, CLOGSAG and the National Labour Commission (NLC) on Wednesday, April 27, 2022, held a meeting on the way forward.

After the meeting, Deputy Labour Minister, Bright Wireko Brobbey, said they are hopeful that all outstanding issues will be resolved by Friday, April 29, 2022, as engagements were happening between both parties; the government and CLOGSAG.
