General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia has accused government of being behind his son’s current unemployment situation.
According to Asiedu Nketia popularly called General Mosquito, his son was sacked from his job to serve as his [Asiedu Nketia] punishment.
In a recent interview with Joy News, General Mosquito said, government coerced a private company at the harbour to fire his son to show him where power lies for being overly critical of the current regime.
He said though the company is a private business, they require a license from the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority to operate and therefore could not withstand the pressure mounted on them by the ‘authorities-that-be’, thus leading to the termination of his son’s contract.
“My son is out of work, He happens to be working with a private company at the harbour. That private company operates with a government licence. You have the management of GPHA squeezing that private company that unless and until my son is sacked the licence will be withdrawn so my son has to be sacked. He’s in the house as I speak to you,” he said.
Asiedu Nketia disclosed that his son has been unemployed for three years as a result of this inhumane act initiated by government officials.
