The New Patriotic Party has rubbished reports that the Single Spine Salary Structure (SSSS) will be abolished by the party should it regain power from the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the impending December polls.

Sections of the media had reported that an Akufo-Addo government will do away with the scheme when it wins power, and the NPP is accusing its political opponents of being behind what it terms as "a campaign of lies, insults and fabrication".

In a press statement signed by its National Chairman, Jake Obetsebi Lamptey, the NPP said, "political power will not be sacrificed on the altar of deceit", stressing that the party will never scrap a scheme that was planned and prepared by the erstwhile Kufuor administration.

“We wish to categorically state that the government of President J.A. Kufour worked tirelessly on the policy framework and modalities from 2006 and had prepared for implementation by early 2009...It is therefore not possible for anyone on the Akufo-Addo 2012 team to abolish the scheme, God willing when victory is secured at the 2012 polls. Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, our Running Mate for 2012, an astute economist of international repute knows the benefits of the SSSS. He has never said that the SSSS will be abolished," the statement said.


Below is the statement issued by the NPP on the SSSS.


SINGLE SPINE SALARY STRUCTURE WAS INTRODUCED BY THE NPP

Our attention has been drawn to news in a section of the media about an abolishing of the Single Spine Salary Structure (SSSS) when the NPP is elected.

We wish to categorically state that the government of President J.A. Kufour worked tirelessly on the policy framework and modalities from 2006 and had prepared for implementation by early 2009. When a new government was elected they suspended implementation for a year.

It cannot be true that any individual or the NPP will think of abolishing such a noble initiative that seeks to restructure and streamline our salary scheme, for people to be paid for work done and dignify work for our country’s working population.

It is therefore not possible for anyone on the Akufo-Addo 2012 team to abolish the scheme, God willing when victory is secured at the 2012 polls.

Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, our Running Mate for 2012, an astute economist of international repute knows the benefits of the SSSS. He has never said that the SSSS will be abolished.

The penchant of our opponents to throw dust in the eyes of the Ghanaian public and waging a campaign of lies, insults and fabrication continues.

We are fully prepared to make sure that we tell the people of this country the truth. Political power will not be sacrificed on the altar of deceit.

We want to assure all Ghanaians and most especially workers who have been migrated and those who are yet to, that a new NPP government led by Nana Akufo-Addo and Dr. Mahamud Bawumia will work in the interest of not just the SSSS but also personal development and appraisal of our work force. What we believe in is prosperity for all.


Signed,

Jake Otanka Obetsebi-Lamptey

National Chairman
