UE: NPP communicators call off strike, promise to correct defective communication in their absence

Communicators of the governing New Patriotic Party in the Upper East Region have called off their indefinite strike.

The communicators had embarked on a sit-down strike in early July to express their displeasure following the appointment of former Bongo DCE, Peter Ayinbisa Ayamga.

The disgruntled communicators had argued that the regional executives of the party disrespected them by foisting the failed Regional Organizer aspirant; Mr. Ayinbisa on them as Director of Communication of the party in the Upper East Region.

But in a response, the regional executives in a letter signed by the Regional Secretary, Elvis Figo Awonekai, the executives said the plea made by the communicators for a broader consultation before the appointment of Mr. Ayinbisa was bond out of “malice and sheer bitterness” by the communicators.

But after a month of protest, the communicators decided to call off the strike immediately following a series of interventions including the regional minister.

“The regional communication team has decided to resume their cherished responsibility of speaking for and on behalf of the party and government to ensure we put the party on the path of breaking the eight (8) in the 2024 general elections.”

“We believe that the status quo should be maintained particularly in the best interests of the party rather than the whims and caprices of individuals, especially at this critical juncture when competence is required to explain government programs, policies, and pro-poor interventions in the country especially in the Upper East Region.”

During the period of the strike, the NPP regional director ‘recruited’ what others described as ‘substandard’ communicators to replace the striking communicators.

While calling off their strike, the communicators assured the media that they were returning with full force to correct the defective communication exhibited by the Mr. Ayinbisa-led ‘substandard’ communicators.
