Communicators of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) have resolved to embark on a sit down strike, citing neglect and unfair treatment by the party and the government.
The decision to suspend services, according to reports gathered by The Chronicle, was reached at an emergency meeting held last Monday by members of the Communication Team, including serial callers.
Sources told the paper that the decision received massive endorsement from all the members of the Communication team, whose several appeals to the party and the government for better conditions of service had fallen on deaf ears.
True to their decision, the voices of the various communicators were conspicuously absent on several radio stations in the Ashanti regional capital during breakfast shows yesterday, and indications are that they would continue to suspend services until their grievances are addressed by the party.
Interestingly, the decision by the communicators comes a few days after the President visited the region to inspect ongoing projects, and interact with the party leadership. What appears to have peppered their resolve, according to an inside source, was the futile attempt by the team to have audience with the President and share their problems during his visit, a situation they blame party leadership in the region of orchestrating.
“They knew that when we meet the President, we will spill the beans and expose them, so they managed to prevent us from getting audience with His Excellency the President,” a leading member of the team lamented in an interview.
