Per a report by Starrfm.com.gh, the action of the staff has left several passengers stranded at the lorry terminal, especially passengers travelling to the northern parts of Ghana, Sunyani and other parts of central Ghana.

Kwame Asumadu, one of the senior staff members, revealed that they intend to move their protest to Accra if the chief executive officer (CEO) of the company fails to resolve the matter.

“What annoys us the most is the lack of common respect for us the staff of the Metro Mass Transit. The young man they brought here to manage the company talks to us anyhow as if we are his children,” Asumadu stated.

He added that the company is facing collapse under the current administration, as there is more talk and less action.

Asumadu went on to say that, a visit to the station would prove that at least 200 vehicles are not in operation.

If provoked he went on, the staff would have no option than to reveal all the corrupt practices in the system.

In other news, former president John Dramani Mahama, has reacted to plans to regulate the activities of churches in Ghana.

According to him, the activities of some false prophets are not enough grounds to regulate religious organisations.

In his opinion, the church has come a long way and has contributed in shaping society, and for that reason, the councils and leadership of churches should deal with their own when they err.
