AKUFO-ADDO-FREE-1-963x520

The Akufo-Addo-led government has sacked 525 National Security officers, Minority Leader and Member of Parliament for Tamale South, Haruna Iddrisu has said.

Addressing a press conference Wednesday to respond to President Akufo-Addo’s maiden State of the Nation Address, Hon. Iddrisu said the dismissals by the NPP government is a clear slap in the face of jobless Ghanaian youth and would further deepen their anxiety and desperation.

Mr. Iddrisu said in the first month of the NPP government “205 employees of the National Service Scheme have been unceremoniously dismissed on very flimsy and clearly partisan considerations. 110 middle level staff of COCOBOD in lawful employment have also been dismissed for no apparent reason.”

Mr. Iddrisu added that “8,634 Nurses who had received financial clearance and had been employed in various public health institutions have been thrown out of their jobs by the Akufo Addo/Bawumia government.

“265 Police recruits who had reached advanced stages of training have had their dreams of entering the police service crushed by an unreasonable decision to dismiss them. 525 National Security personnel have also been shown the exit and asked to go home by this government.

“This represents a clear slap in the face of jobless Ghanaian youth and would further deepen their anxiety and desperation. It further marks an unforgivable betrayal of the many unemployed youth who voted for the NPP on the basis of tantalizing promises to give them jobs.”

The minority also described the President’s Akufo-Addo’s maiden State of the Nation Address, as “high on platitudes and short of substance.”

“Even on the things that he touched on, he was high on platitudes and short on substance. Lofty rhetoric and propaganda dominated vast segments of his delivery and in the end, an opportunity was missed by him to carry Ghanaians along on his much-vaunted promises,”
