The ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) is likely to lose about 20,000 votes from teachers across the country who have vowed to vote against the current government for implementing policies that are detrimental to them.

The teachers who are members of the Coalition of Concerned Teachers Ghana are protesting government’s decision to pay newly recruited teachers only three months of their salary arrears irrespective of the number of years the said teachers have worked.

The teachers also say their promotion arrears have not been paid hence they are calling on all their members to vote out the government.

Speaking to EIB Network’s Musah Lansah in an interview after a press conference to make their intentions known, the Upper West Regional Chairman of the CCT Alhassan Abdallah Salifu said,” we are not doing this with a partisan mindset but based on our convictions as teachers who have not been treated right”.

According to him, their membership cuts across all political divide including die hard members of the ruling NDC.

” It will surprise you to note that the leadership of the CCT in the upper west region has some serious members of the NDC among us. We are interested in ensuring that our members are treated right”, he told Musah Lansah.

He added that, they will ensure that all their about 20,000 members vote against the NDC.”How can I work for over a year only for you to pay me three months salary?, he quizzed.
