The Association of Aggrieved Teachers of 2015 have called on the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II and the National Chief Imam and other stakeholders to call on the President, Nana Akufo-Addo to pay them of their salary arrears.
A statement signed by secretary of the association, Ankamah Stephen, and issued on Monday, August 17, 2020 stated that President Akufo-Addo promised to pay all unpaid salary arrears in his 2016 campaign message.
A portion of the statement read as follows “however there has been information speculating that the government and the Ministry of Education have paid all legacy salary arrears which none of the 201 5 batch is included”.
The association expressed optimism that their request would be granted when the president is duly notified.
“Knowing the abilities of the sitting president, we are hereby reminding him that none of the 2015 batch has been paid. With the trust in our president as a listening father, he will deliver his promise made to us”, they said.
The association also said that they are ready to make available all relevant documents ‘devoid of discrepancies’ upon request.
The group further called on stakeholders such as the Teacher Unions, Christian Council of Ghana, Peace Council, Pentecostal and Charismatic Councils to remind the president to fulfill his promise to them.
