Members of the Registered Nurses and Midwives Association are asking government to halt the construction of the National Cathedral and focus on cutting down on government expenditure to save the country from its current economic woes.
They have also suggested to government to seal leakages in the mining sector and ensure all entities given tax waivers start contributing to the national coffers.
The nurses and midwives were speaking during a government meeting with organised labour on the domestic debt exchange programme.
Government is currently working with stakeholders to arrive at a consensus on its domestic debt exchange programme.
President of the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association , Perpetual Ofori Ampofo says hair-cuts to their investments will have dire consequences on contributors especially retirees.
The association wants government to implement suggestions made during their engagement and suspend the domestic debt exchange programme.
According to her, government should consider cutting down it’s expenditure, seal loopholes in revenue generation including reviewing tax exemptions to foreign companies.
Mrs. Ampofo wants government’s technical team to come out with ideas to address the country’s debt and desist from tapping into bonds and savings.
Speaking to the media during the Kumasi branch commissioning of the health sector occupational pension scheme, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Dr. Derek Amoateng said the current economic situation has affected the returns on contributors investment.
Notwithstanding, they are working assiduously to ensure health workers retiring will go home with a smile.
