Mr Prosper Pi-Bansah, Municipal Chief Executive for Ho, Friday said Government was working around the clock for workers to enjoy their contributions to national development, saying, “there are better days ahead for workers.”
He said the decision by Government to absorb water and electricity bills to cushion the citizenry in the wake of COVID 19 signaled Government’s commitment to the welfare of workers.
Mr Pi-Bansah said this in a “Workers’ Day” message through the Ghana News Agency.
He said more was being done behind the scenes for the Ghanaian worker and called for support for Government.
The MCE asked workers to recommit themselves to the service of the nation, work harder and meet targets to grow the local economy.
He said the Ho Municipal Assembly was working towards creating an enabling environment to grow local businesses to create jobs.
Mr Godwin Edudzi Effah, Keta Municipal Chief Executive, also said there were plans to make workers in the Municipality happy after COVID-19.
He said the Assembly had recognised the contributions of workers, especially those in the informal sector to the local economy and said “they will reap their sacrifices after God has taken this COVID-19 away.”
Mr Effah said the Assembly was establishing a special fish market and also working on a fish landing site to attract fishing vessels and reposition Keta as ‘home of fish.’
He said plans were also afoot to engage other players in the informal sector on ways to grow the local economy and create jobs.
The MCE congratulated workers in the Municipality and urged them to work with the Assembly to attract the needed support and investments for mutual benefit.
