Some serial callers of the governing New Patriotic Party, NPP in the Ashanti Region, have burnt their own mobile phones as part of a sit-down strike which started on today, September 12, 2018.
The callers are lamenting over hardship in the country and neglect of serial callers after working to ensure victory for the party. The aggrieved serial callers held a press conference on [Wednesday], September 12,2018 at the Abbey’s park in Kumasi, put together their mobile phones, pour petrol and burn them to ashes.
They also accused the Ashanti Regional Minister, Hon. Simon Osei-Mensah and Ashanti Regional NADMO Director, Kwabena Nsenkyiri and other top officials of abandoning them after “all the dirty works” before and during the 2016 general elections, that brought them to power, after which those who “did nothing to help the party are now enjoying”.
According to the NPP serial callers, says the party has failed to honour its promise to increase their wages and provide them jobs.
“Monkey will no longer work for bamboo to chop again, we have been using our own mobile phones, buy our own credit cards. Our party is in power but most of us who helped the party to power are struggling to make ends meet, while the Regional Executives and some government appointees are living in comfort,” the chairman of the association, Abel Anokye, said.
“Until these two executives are sacked form their posts, we will not engage anybody to negotiate in rescinding our decision, and they are the ones behind our woes,” he angrily concluded
Notable among the NPP serial callers were Kwabena Nyame, Abilale, Kwame NPP, Kofi Dubai Kejetia MP, Hamza and Tic 5.
