On Thursday, 20th August, 2020, the Volta Region Ghana Journalists Association wrote a letter to the Volta Regional Secretariat of NDC addressing the regional chairman Mr. Henry Ametefee for the unfair treatment meted out to some journalists during the Leader and Flagbearer of NDC’s tour to the region.
The Association in their letter disclosed that, they received an official invitation from the regional office in connection with the presidential candidate’s tour to the region.
Surprisingly, their members who traveled from different parts of the region for an engagement with the Flagbearer on Wednesday, August 19, 2020 were made to wait in vain for the meeting from 7pm to 10pm without any explanation from the Party officials at whose behest members gathered. The meeting according to them did not come off meanwhile they have incurred huge sums of debt.
Meanwhile, the Region Regional Secretariat of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in a press statement signed by the Communications Director Mr. Pope Yao Yevoo has since condemned the action of the National Democratic Congress to Volta Journalists.
