Serial callers and social media commentators of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Ashanti Region are complaining that they have been left out of the ‘goodies’ being shared among their colleagues in other parts of the regions.
They lamented that they are very hungry than when the party was in opposition.
The serial callers bemoaned the neglect by the party hierarchy after taking over power from the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
They claimed they have been left out in the appointments by the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo after toiling for the party during the electioneering.
According to them, their colleagues in other regions have either been given monies or appointed whilst they have been left to wallow in poverty.
Speaking on Abusua FM’s Abusua Nkommo hosted by Kwame Adinkra, one of the serial callers Daniel Arthur popularly called ‘Commander Fire’ lamented that their counterparts in the NDC were supported to build houses and factories but they have nothing to be proud of after wasting monies on the party.
Mr. disclosed that they finance their own activities and that none of the party’s gurus support them either by purchasing airtime or giving them money.
‘We the serial callers spend not less than GH¢25.00 on airtime a day just to call to contribute to topics on radio and television stations. We use our own monies. Multiply this amount by 8 years, we could have built storey buildings with this money. We are very hungry, we are not requesting for positions but they should give us some money. Majority of NDC communicators were appointed when they were voted into power, why is our case different,’ he asked.
The aggrieved serial caller said it is prudent for the bigwigs to reward them, saying they are always left on their own when they are involved in casualties in the line of their duties.
He requested their names to appear on government payroll calling on the President to employ them into the various government agencies and departments to prevent any untoward.
‘Some of us are mechanical engineers whilst others have vocational training skills, we can work in some of the agencies by contributing our quota to the development of the country, we need to be motivated by the party, we have been rejected,’ he said.
The serial callers have laid down their tools indefinitely.
