-The Western Regional Secretary of NDC has sued the Attorney General
-The suit is in reference to the recent transfers being carried out by the Youth Employment Agency
-Among the reliefs he is seeking is to get the court freeze the “proceed on leave” clause
The former coordinator of the Youth Employment Agency for the Western Region who also doubles as the Western Regional Secretary of opposition NDC, Mr. Joseph Nelson has jointly sued the Attorney-General and Youth Employment Agency.
He is seeking the court to stay the transfer of employees which has been initiated by the current administration.
He claimed that the current officials of the Youth Employment Agency who were installed by the NPP are on a mission of re-assigning employees and transferring some of them from one region to the other. He added in the writ that he was also against the reducing of the positions of some officials of the agency and some were even being moved altogether.
He indicated that the affected parties were given seven days to move to their newly-assigned regions or places of posting without prior arrangements made for transportation and accommodation.
He added that some action should be taken against the fact that some employees were asked to proceed on leave; an act he was opposed to.
He is requesting that the High Court prevent the implementation of the decision of the current YEA officials in relation to the employees who were at post before the change of government.
To this effect, the High Court has since allowed an interim injunction of 10 days against the Agency and Attorney General from proceeding with the reported mass transfers of almost 500 staff of Youth Employment Agency to other regions.
