Industrial peace under my watch is unmatched – Akufo-Addo

President Nana Akufo-Addo has said “industrial peace” under his watch compared to previous government has been unmatched, stating that the minister responsible for employment and labour relations, Ignatius Baffour-Awuah, has played a major role in maintaining stability on the labour front.

Addressing the Bono regional house of chiefs at the Jubilee House on Wednesday 18 May 2022, Akufo-Addo said the minister who hails from the Bono Region, has been excellent at ensuring the labour front of the country is peaceful.

“I don’t know which period in our history has enjoyed industrial peace like under my presidency. Yes, there has been worker agitation but those are inevitable. A careful look, however, shows that overall, industrial peace in Ghana under the period of my presidency has been unmatched,” Akufo-Addo said.

“It has largely been possible because of the minister responsible for employment and labour relations, [Ignatius Baffour-Awuah], who is ‘your royal’ from the Bono Region,” the told the chiefs, queen mothers and elders of the Bono Region.

“I thank you [the chiefs and elders of Bono Region] for giving me such a person to work with me as I govern the country,” President Akufo – Addo added.
