  • Published: , Refreshed:

Some 35 unionized workers of the Ghana National Gas Company Limited  who demonstrated at the company's Atuabo Gas Processing Facility at Atuabo in the Ellembelle district of the Western Region were on Monday prevented from entering the facility.

They were denied entry by armed military and police personnel stationed at the entrance to the plant.

Some of the members who insisted entering the facility according to Pulse news  sources at the facility nearly clashed with the security men deployed to denied them entry.

"Come to think of it, the security men said management have asked them to deny us entry because we are a  threat to the facility. Does demonstrating against bad management practices and poor working conditions constitute a security threat? We have agreed to stay away  because of Awulae. [the Paramount Chief of  Eastern Nzema Traditional Area Awulae Amihere Kpanyile who was recently made a board member of Ghana Gas]"

Sources at Ghana Gas told pulse.com.gh that "the Operations Manager Robert Lartey informed us in an email that we can resume work on Monday. But to our surprise 35 of us on  shift today  were denied access.

The workers are scheduled to meet with the Ghana Gas Board Chairman and Petroleum Minister, Emmanuel Armah Kofi Buah, this week.
