Get other jobs if you want to become millionaires - Akufo-Addo to Teachers

President Akufo-Addo has stated without equivocation that teaching does not make rich. According to him, teaching is a sacrificial service one renders not expecting to rake in much money to become an overnight millionaire.

Speaking to an exclusive audience, Akufo-Addo said teachers can’t rely solely on their work expecting to get rich or become millionaires. He added that teachers will have to do more… rely on other streams of income and pursue other careers if they really wanna experience what financial independence means.

These words from President Akufo-Addo come at a time when the welfare of teachers in Ghana is bad. Ghanaian teachers are poorly remunerated in comparison to those of other countries.
