Fair Wages and Salaries Commission’s (FWSC) management and staff on Friday held a thanksgiving service to show gratitude to God for seeing them through a difficult but successful year of implementing Government’s new pay policy.
“The year was difficult and tough but we are grateful to God for seeing us through and bringing us this far,” Mr Graham Smith, Chief Executive of the Commission said at the Church service, which was attended by stakeholders from public institutions, organised labour and the media.
Mr Graham said the Commission owed it a duty to thank God for his grace and guidance which made it possible for them to carry out their mandate toward the implementation of the single spine salary structure for all public sector workers in the country.
He said the Commission was optimistic that God would usher them into a more positive 2013 year and enable the FWSC to achieve all the objectives of the new policy, adding the Commission would organise the thanksgiving every year.
Reverend Sam Korankye-Ankrah, the Founder and Apostle General of Royalhouse Chapel Churches and Missions, preaching the sermon, said God in 2013 would reposition the FWSC and move it to the next level because it did not forget to show appreciation to Him (God).
He said God demands thanksgiving and appreciation from us, and if the managers and staff of the FWSC had remembered to give back to God, then the same God would complete wholly what He has started with them.
Dwelling on the theme of the thanksgiving service which was “Renewed Strength”, Rev Korankye-Ankrah said, cultivating the habit of reflection, an attitude of worship and celebrating seasonal and periodic fulfillment, were the right ingredients for rekindling and restoring of their strength and hope for the coming year.
