'Enough is enough,' ICU demonstrates for Opuni's removal

The union demonstrated today in Accra to present a petition to the ministry of labour and industrial relations, detailing instances of disrespect from the CEO to workers.

 

Presenting the petition to the deputy labour minister, Mr Solomon Kotei  said the petitioners “are here to let the president know that enough is enough”

“We cannot look on for this opulence from the Chief Executive," he continued, "We cannot look on for disrespect to the high office of this country,” the ICU General Secretary added.

“If the presidency has given a directive and it has been flouted like this, what again is left with us,” he said.

It will be recalled that some weeks ago, the workers held a press conference and alleged that Opuni and some leadership of COCOBOD were involved in some secret selling of cocoa amounting $10 million.

They said the state was losing that much due to the secret sale.

Mr in his address also noted that workers who have asked Opuni to do the right thing were given “punitive transfer.”

Mohammed Baba Jamal who received the petition on behalf of the president and the ministry said the workers should calm down and that they did some good by not necessarily creating problems.

“I can assure you that this matter will be given all the attention it deserves,” he said. “This your issue is not something we are going to sleep on… there will solution to this,” he said to cheers and applauds from the workers.
