THE MUCH publicised intended strike action by communicators of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has been called off.
This follows an engagement by the General Secretary of the NPP, Lawyer Justin Frimpong Kodua with the Director of Communications as well as other stakeholders late last night.
Speaking to Press1News this dawn, Lawyer Kodua said the communicators agreed to call off the strike and wait for the plan the national executives had in mind.
“I assured them that engagement with key stakeholders are ongoing and very soon the support will start coming”, Lawyer JFK stated.
The General Secretary said the role of the communicators was vital to the projection and promotion of government programmes and policies.
The New Patriotic Party, Lawyer Kodua intimated does not take the work of the communicators lightly.
These hard working Party members, he noted at times use their own resources to defend the party.
“I believe their call is legitimate and as a party we would do what we can to work out something for them to make them secure and motivated to work for the progress of the NPP”, Lawyer Kodua posited.
The General Secretary has meanwhile expressed gratitude to other party executives who showed interest in appealing to the communicators to call off their intended strike action.
This, he noted showed their commitment to seeing the party do well in all aspects of its operations.
“We are happy that other party executives showed concern when this intended strike action of communicators came up and together with all stakeholders we will see to the resolution of the challenges of the group”, the General Secretary said.
Confirming the suspension, Dennis Kwakwa, Ashanti Regional Director of Communications said they had suspended the strike action.
He said the National Communications director asked for a week’s suspension to allow for a further discussion with National executives.
The Directorate, he inferred would meet after a week and decide on what next to do if nothing concrete comes out from engagements with the National Executives.
