President Mahama says he is worried by the ongoing strike by teachers across the country.
He made the comment when he met the leadership of the Teacher unions at the Flagstaff House in Accra on Monday.
The President reiterated his appeal to the Teachers to call off their strike while their concerns are being looked into.
He spoke after the various parties came out with a communiqué regarding the strike.
He however cautioned the Teachers to be conscious of the public wage bill whenever making their demands.
“The industrial action embarked upon by the teachers has worried everybody in this country more so myself as the Chief Executive and I have continued to appeal to the teachers to go back to the classrooms”.
Meanwhile, the Secretary General of the Trades Union Congress, Kofi Asamoah has urged the government to be proactive in dealing with labour concerns before they escalate.
