Tema residents react to retirement age extension
Some Tema Residents on Friday expressed divergent positions on calls for a review of retirement age for public service workers from 60 to 65 years
This was proposed by Mr Mahama Ayariga Member of Parliament for Bawku Central.
Mr Yusif Alhassan, ex-soldier of the Ghana Armed Forces, touted the recommendation stressing, “I think if the person is 60 years and strong and can work why not, he can be considered and be at post for the extra five years”.
He said some sections of the 1992 Constitution provided some persons in some public services the opportunity of a five-year contract after retirement.
