The Secretary General of the Trades Union Congress (TUC), Dr Yaw-Baah, has told President Nana Addo Dankwa AkufoAddo to immediately resolve the power outages.

He said that it is regrettable that after experiencing power challenges previously, Ghanains are witnessing the problem again currently.

“It is regrettable that people have to experience dumsor again, please do something about dumsor now,” said In an address to mark this year’s May Day celebration on Wednesday, May 1,

Dr Yaw-Baah, further stated that it appears there is no light at the end of the tunnel.

In his view, the programme with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) is not yielding the expected results for workers.

Bawumia reiterates his assurance that power outages will soon be over

“It appears there is no end in sight for the challenges, we were told that an IMF bailout will help but we know that an IMF bailout can’t be the solution to the economic hardship…We have a lot to do to protect the workers of Ghana,” he said.

Regarding the challenges of the Cedi, Dr Yaw Baah said in order to deal with the woes there’s a need to reduce importation.

He said import requires the exchange of the local currency into dollars.

This, he said, strains on the Cedi hence, the need to reduce the import and consumption ore locally produced foods.

he said “If we want our Cedi to be stable we should reduce import and consume what we produce in Ghana.”

The theme for the celebrations in Ghana is “Elections 2024: The Role of Workers and Social Partners in Securing Peaceful Elections for National Development.”

Ahead of the general elections, Dr Yaw-Baah urged the Electoral Commission to deliver free, fair, and transparent elections.

He also asked the Police and the judiciary to play their roles effectively to ensure credible polls.
