The Regional Communicators of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Volta Region have vowed to boycott media discussions on the 2018 Budget delivered by the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta on Wednesday.
The 2018 Budget dubbed “Putting Ghana back to work” is informed by President Akufo-Addo’s coordinated programme for economic and social development policies which aims at creating a conducive environment for the private sector to thrive, propel growth and create employment opportunities, especially for the youth.
It would be recalled that the youth of the ruling NPP have been agitating for jobs leading to some vigilante groups within the party taking over state installations to send a message to the leadership of the party regarding the need to provide them jobs.
The Regional Communications Team of the NPP in the Volta in a communiqué signed by one of its members, Moses Anagli, said they will not represent the party on any media platform as a result of unfair treatment meted out to them.
“Member of the Regional Communications Team of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has resolved to boycott radio and TV discussions on the 2018 Budget Statement delivered by the Finance Minister and other government related discussions until further notice.”
They added: “We have come to this painful and regrettable decision based on the treatment being meted out to us by the Regional Communications Director, the Regional Minister, the Deputy Regional Minister, MDCEs and other government functionaries in the region.”
“We are by this communiqué drawing the party and the government’s attention to the development in the region for quick intervention to save the party and the government in the region,” they disclosed.
