The Communication team members of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) responsible for defending and promoting the ruling government projects across the country on various media platforms have served notice of embarking on strike effective Monday 30th January 2023.
A member of the Ashanti regional communication team who spoke to GHOne News Ashanti regional correspondent Isaac Justice Bediako on condition of anonymity said their colleagues in Accra have signaled them not to go on radio from Monday until their outstanding allowances are paid.
“Since we elected the new national executive we haven’t received any monthly allowance. They used to give us GHc1000 but the money is not coming anymore. We didn’t even receive anything for Christmas; hunger is killing us while we are on radio and TV defending their corrupt deals with empty stomachs” he complained.
Meanwhile, a memo released on the regional platform of party communicators asked the communicators to comply with the sit-down strike until further notice.
