NDC activist fumes over dismissal of DVLA workers
An Accra-based leading advocate for the minority National Democratic Congress, Mr Abdul Basit Swallah, has expressed his anger over the dismissal of 100 members of staff of the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) by the Chief Executive Officer, Mr Kwesi Agyeman Busia.
Speaking at a news conference in Accra,Mr Swallah described as unfortunate and wickedness the overwhelming trend of firing Ghanaians from their jobs by the government of President Nana Akufo-Addo.
He opined that the actions being  perpetrated by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to alienate state employees who are perceived to be members of the NDC is worrying.
“Our research team’s interaction with the sacked victims from the various public institutions across the regions revealed that most of the victims voted for the ruling NPP and to think of punishing supporters of the NDC is a counterproductive measure to nation building” he said.
He described the comment by Mr Busia that the sacking of the 100 workers is not politically motivated as the joke of the century.
He asked if the DVLA chief has ever been jobless or witnessed a Christmas or Id-ul Fitri celebration without food on the table.
According to him the decision to deny the sacked staff their sources of survival is cruel and also creates a pathetic and worrying environment in the country.
Mr Swallah, who once served as an officer in the British military, charged the CEO of the DVLA to recall the sacked workers with immediate effect in the interest of the their households.
According him, the continuous silence of President Akufo-Addo  on many issues including the firing of professionals, notably the Medical Director of the newly created Greater Accra Regional Hospital, Dr.Thomas Anaba,  is a clear indication that policies are not pursued in the national interest but in the interest of the NPP
