The National Democratic Congress (NDC) is deeply concerned that the Government is deliberately allowing its dispute with unions representing public workers and teachers, over the Government’s 2018 immoral and wrongful docking of salaries of their members, to linger on and on.

In principle, the NDC has no difficulty with upgrading our infrastructure. After all, that is part of the role and function of Government.
