The Board Chairman of the Metro Mass Transit Limited (MMTL), Osabarima Ansah Sasraku III, has dismissed allegations leveled against him by the workers of the company.
The workers on Monday declared a nationwide strike to demand the dismissal of the Board Chairman and Deputy Managing Director over the disappearance of some 12 buses.
The drivers accused the two of involvement in the disappearance of 12 of the company’s buses and insisted that their continuous stay in office may lead to the demise of the company.

“How can workers one day just get up and go on strike on an issue that they the leadership are part of the committee that have investigated the issue and come up with the findings that no single metro mass serviceable bus is missing but then go on air, go on strike that their busses are missing and so they are asking that some individuals should be held responsible.”
Osabarima Ansah Sasraku III questioned if in Ghana that is how strikes are declared ‘how can the board give directive that if any metro mass bus was not missing a statement should be issued to the Ghanaian public to educate them but some individuals decided they would choose not to do that so that some orchestrated action can be taken and many more’.
“So yes that strike action that happened did not just happen, there are people who instigated it but then you know what they have light a fire and lets see how they would quench, so we wait to see. The kind of indiscipline that they have introduced into the company, we are all watching and we are waiting to see how they will quench.” he queried.
