CCG congratulates workers, calls for sound work ethics

The Christian Council of Ghana congratulates every Ghanaian worker on the occasion of May Day Celebration for their enormous contributions to the development of our dear country.

May Day is a moment where we celebrate and appreciate workers from all sectors of our economy for their commitment, patriotism and efforts in developing our nation. It also provides an opportunity for workers to air their views and challenges confronting them for redress.

As we celebrate this year’s May Day, the Council entreats Ghanaian workers and employers in general to develop innovative ways of promoting sound work ethic in the work place. We are of the conviction that, promotion of sound work ethic is one of the surest ways of enhancing productivity.

The Council also urges employers to use this celebration to reflect on the needs of their employers and take the necessary steps to improve their conditions of service to meet the current economic situation in the country

As we celebrate workers, it is also important to celebrate indigenous entrepreneurs such as Dr. Osei Kwame Despite of the Despite Group of Companies and Alhaj Mustapha Oti Boateng of Chocho Industries and Company Limited for their tremendous efforts in the provision of employment and support to the industrial growth of this country. We urge government to provide the necessary incentives and support such as tax exemptions to cushion indigenous entrepreneurs to enable them compete with foreign companies, create better job opportunities and also become viable in contributing to the growth of our economy.

As we look forward to dealing with the challenges of our economy and the future, we urge government, employers and the unions to continue to work closely together towards our common objective of better workers, better jobs and better conditions of service, so as to create a better life for Ghanaians.

It is our prayer that the good Lord will continue to strengthen, guide and bless every Ghanaian worker and cause them to give in their best for our country.

We admonish every worker with Ecclesiastes 9:10 which read “whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work or device or knowledge or wisdom in the grave where you are going.”

A blessed May Day to every Ghanaian worker!


Rev. Dr. Kwabena Opuni-Frimpong

General Secretary
