General News of Wednesday, 2 August 2017
Members of the Pro-New Patriotic Party (NPP) group, Invisible Forces in Tema have threatened to visit mayhem on the President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his government officials for failure of providing them with jobs.
The heavily built men who shared their grievances at a Town Hall meeting organised by the Ministry of Information in Tema on August 1, 2017, said they are being ridiculed for being unemployed, despite the fact that they worked hard to bring the party to power as they were promised jobs during the 2016 electioneering period.
According to them, after the party came into power, government officials have now turned their backs on them to the extent that phone calls to the officials go unanswered.
Members of the Invisible Forces vowed to say they will vent their frustrations on Tema in a manner akin to the Delta Force’s disturbances in Kumasi if their neglect by the government does not end.
The spokesperson of the group said, “You promised that there are certain jobs on the way coming. We exchanged numbers with those who are supposed to employ us. I have called them for almost two months now but nobody is ready to answer my calls.”
“Please, if they will not give us work to do, what happened at Kumasi, the same thing will happen here… We are even ashamed. Some of us, we are walking in the sun and they are laughing at us. Is that how the party is supposed to treat us?”
In March this year, some irate members of Delta Force stormed the offices of the Ashanti Regional Security Coordinator in Kumasi, smashed windows and doors and threw him out of his office.
The group claimed that Mr George Adjei, who had been appointed Ashanti Regional Security Coordinator for the region, was an outsider who was unknown to them and had neither been in the trenches nor suffered with them when the NPP was campaigning to win 2016 general election.
