The newly appointed Regional Communications Director of the NPP in the Upper East Region, Peter Ayinbisa is asking communicators to put their differences with him and his appointment aside so the work can continue.
Communicators for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Upper East Region have embarked on an indefinite strike. The strike is to drive home their distaste for the newly appointed Regional Communications Director, Peter Ayinbisa.
Deep throat sources who confirmed the strike action suggest that as communicators, they are severely displeased that an individual, Peter Ayinbisa, who is not a member of the Regional Communications Team, would be appointed to such a delicate position.
The sources within the party gave the indication that their sympathies lie with the former Deputy Director of Communications for the NPP, Johnson Ayine.
Meanwhile, speaking on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show, today, Thursday, June 23, 2022, Mr. Ayinbisa called for calm. He encouraged the communicators to return to work.
“Yesterday, they had a meeting and they resolved that they would want to stay away from communicating in the meantime. I was not part of the meeting but I got the import of the meeting. One of the reasons they said is that the Regional Executives did not consult them when appointing the Regional Communications Director.”
“I want to use this medium to appeal to them that we need one another. We need to come together to communicate. We need to come together to showcase the government’s activities. To stay away from it would amount to something else.”
“My dear communicators, Johnson, Sanusi, Maxwell and the rest of you, please reconsider your decision and come and join the rest of us so that we can communicate and inform the Ghanaian people,” he said.
Meanwhile, information available to A1 Radio indicates that the Regional Executives may be unwilling to bargain or negotiate with the striking communicators.
