There is mounting tension in the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) as the workers are demanding the immediate removal of their Director-General, Professor Amin Alhassan, accusing him of inefficient management.
The workers of the State broadcaster allege that the four-year tenure of Prof Alhassan, has been a monumental failure that has worsened the plight of the Corporation.
As part of protest actions to push for his removal, the workers have hoisted red flags and banners inside and outside the GBC premises.
The protest heightened on Wednesday after the workers had wind of attempts to extend the Director-General’s four-year contract, which expired on October 1, 2023.
Any further extension, according to the workers, would be detrimental to the Corporation.
Samuel Nathaniel Kevor, Divisional Union Chairman of GBC Workers Union told journalists that GBC has deteriorated under the leadership of Prof. Alhassan.
“Our Director-General’s contract expired on 1st of October, 2023. As a result, workers have resolved that we’ve given him a peaceful four-year tenure, and that is enough. We are not happy
“The company is fast deteriorating. Even tools to work with have become a challenge and we’ve realized that we need to make the appointing authority understand that if we extend the contract the place will collapse,” he stressed.
