Demonstrating Ghana Gas workers prevented from facility
Some of the members who insisted entering the facility according to Pulse news sources at the facility nearly clashed with the security men deployed to denied them entry.
They were denied entry by armed military and police personnel stationed at the entrance to the plant.
"Come to think of it, the security men said management have asked them to deny us entry because we are a threat to the facility. Does demonstrating against bad management practices and poor working conditions constitute a security threat? We have agreed to stay away because of Awulae. [the Paramount Chief of Eastern Nzema Traditional Area Awulae Amihere Kpanyile who was recently made a board member of Ghana Gas]"
Sources at Ghana Gas told pulse.com.gh that "the Operations Manager Robert Lartey informed us in an email that we can resume work on Monday. But to our surprise 35 of us on shift today were denied access.
The workers are scheduled to meet with the Ghana Gas Board Chairman and Petroleum Minister, Emmanuel Armah Kofi Buah, this week.
