Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has stated that the next NDC will ensure pensioners are paid 13th month bonus.
Speaking at the party’s manifesto launch yesterday he stated, “we will amend the National Pensions Act 2008 ACT 766 to improve both service delivery and financial efficiency in the SSNIT pension’s scheme.
“It will allow contributing workers such as private teachers amongst others who lose their jobs suddenly due to natural occurrences such as Covid-19 pandemic to be paid stipends while they search for a new job.
“Allow workers who have contributed for a minimum period of 10 to 15 years to use their contribution as collateral to access mortgage loans for housing. We will pay pensioners an annual 13th month bonus.”
John Mahama stressed that he will make the economy work for all Ghanaians if reelected.
