Communicators of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Ashanti Region have resolved to go off the airwaves in protest against their apparent neglect by the party following its electoral victory in the 2016 polls.

Wofa Anokye, leader of the communicators in the region, has said since the electoral victory of the NPP, no executive of the party had had a meeting with them to assure them of the party’s plans for them.

According to him, all efforts to reach the regional executives have been futile, hence they were laying down their tools until their concerns were addressed.

He told Chief Jerry Forson, host of Ghana Yensom, on Accra100.5FM on Wednesday March 29: “Since the party won the election, no executive of the party has spoken with us on the way forward for us. When you go the regional office now, you will not find anybody there to speak to and so nobody is hearing our concerns. All the regional executives are jumping from one radio station to the other.

“In 2008 when we lost the elections, Nana Akomea and some other executives met all of us and calmed us down and that showed the level of respect they had for us. They did same in 2012, but the situation is not the same now after the 2016 elections. At least we expect that they will speak to us and assure us that it is early days yet and so we should be patient, everything will be fine but nobody is talking to us. Until they speak to us we will no longer speak on behalf of the party.”

Meanwhile, Kwesi Kyei, NPP Director of Communications in the Ashanti Region has asked communicators to calm down as their needs are addressed.

According to him, the party has good plans for the communicators and so they should be patient as the government takes shape.

“I know their concerns and I know how they feel, but I want to tell them that they should be patient. There is no way they will be neglected; it will never happen,” he assured.

“The aspect where they say they don’t meet executives at the office cannot be true because I am always in the office. In fact I have even met the communicators, especially the leader, and told him the plans the party has for them and so they should calm down.”
