The Chief Labour Officer at the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations, Mr Eugene Narh Korletey, has sued sector Minister Ignatius Baffour Awuah for wrongful reassignment.

According to Mr Korletey, the minister has singled him out for abuse and victimisation despite diligently discharging his duties as the head of the Labour Department at the Ministry since 2013.

Mr Korlettey, in his application for a judicial review filed at the Accra High Court, also prayed the court to order the minister not to interfere in the work of the labour department.
