The Concerned Voters Movement (CVM) said, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has, through the prudent management of the Ghanaian economy, fulfilled the expectations of the citizenry.

A statement signed by its Founder and President, Mr Razak Kojo Opoku, copied to the Ghana News Agency in Accra on Monday, the CVM said Government had reduced the suffering of teachers through the prompt payment of salaries and arrears and the research and book allowances to university lecturers.

It said the President had also reduced the plight of teacher and nursing trainees by restoring their allowances and providing employment to more than 54,000 nurses.

The Government has also provided 275 Ambulances for each constituency, paid arrears of the National Health Insurance Service providers, digitized the economy, and stabilised the cedi among other interventions, the statement said.

Pensioners have also benefitted through the payment of GHC3.1 billion Tier-2 pension funds into the custodial accounts of labour unions pension schemes, funds that have been outstanding for six years, and improved services at the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority.

It said the completion of the Mother and Baby Unit at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, the Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty, the provision of free water and electricity, and free food to the vulnerable in areas affected by the partial lockdown were commendable.

The statement called on Ghanaians to add four more years to the President’s term to continue with the good works.
