Former President John Mahama has hailed Ghanaian workers as they join the rest of the world to mark International Worker’ Day or May Day.
The day is set aside by organised labour to celebrate workers as well highlight their challenges.
This year’s celebration is under the theme: “Ghana @ 60: Mobilising Ghana’s Future through the creation of Decent Jobs.’’
In a tweet Monday morning, the former president said: It’s workers day. I join my fellow countrymen and women to salute you all, gallant Ghanaian workers.
This year’s May Day will be marked at the Independent Square where President Nana Akufo-Addo is expected to address the workers.
Meanwhile, a coalition of newly recruited teachers who have not been paid for months has said they will boycott the celebration.
