Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama has pledged that teachers who agree to serve in a rural school will be paid 20% of their salary as an incentive when elected President.

The initiative, the former President believes will encourage more teachers to accept postings to rural areas.

Mr Mahama announced this in a post on Facebook.

This adds to the numerous policies and promises Mr Mahama has assured Ghanaians of ahead of the December 7 election.
