CLOSSAG condemns harassment of Coordinating Director

The Civil and Local Government Staff Association of Ghana (CLOSSAG) has condemned the harassment of Dr Charles Oduro Ameyaw, the District Coordinating Director of Aowin District Assembly in the Western Region by some constituency executives of the ruling New Patriotic Party.

It has, therefore, called on the Government to urgently investigate the matter and bring the culprits to book in order to serve as a deterrent to others.

This was contained in a statement copied to the Ghana News Agency, in Accra, on Tuesday, and signed by Mr Kojo W. Krakani, the Deputy Executive Secretary of CLOOSSAG.

The statement said the district co-ordinating director was dragged from his office around 1000 hours on Tuesday, March 21 without any provocation by the constituency executives.

It said the act was incited by the party constituency executives including the Constituency Chairman, the Women’s Organiser, and the Presiding Member as well as four other party executives.

The statement said it took the timely intervention of the District Immigration Commander and the District Police Crime Officer to avert a nasty spectacle.

”CLOSSAG is appalled by the unwarranted and rude interference by the party executives in the work of the district coordinating director and, would therefore, not stand aloof for its members to be harassed”.

”We have had cause to complain about the politicisation of the services. It is not in the interest of any political party to resurrect this unwholesome practice,” it stated.

The statement said the members of the Association execute the policies of the government and therefore it was right and proper that they worked in an atmosphere devoid of intimidation from party officials.
