Workers of Agricultural Development Bank (adb) have called off their day old sit down strike which began on Thursday.
[contextly_sidebar id=”SruJKMXPPJPK49nwIDOSgDFcod6EpV2H”]Workers embarked on the strike to press home their demand for government to sack its Managing Director, Stephen Kpordzih and also dissolve the current board.
A letter from the union leaders directing the staff to comply with the industrial action said: “With regards to the Board and Managing Director’s refusal to step aside for a proper examination of issues of gross incompetence and corruption raised by the joint unions and the failure of the appointing authorities to nominate external investigators to support the BoG to unravel the truth, we hereby declare a sit-down protest starting on the 28th of May 2015 till our shareholders do the needful”.
The Employment and Labour Minister, Haruna Iddrissu earlier expressed disappointment over the action but promised to meet the workers to iron out their differences.
However a statement released and copied to Citi Business News, indicated that workers called off their strike after considering the effects of their action on customers.
“Dear colleagues…. in respect of the genuine support our customers have given us in this quest for truth, we at this time ask you to resume work to serve our cherished customers,”the statement said.
The statement further indicated their [workers] resolve to continually strive for truth.
“We hereby humbly ask our shareholders to respect the sanctity of corporate governance. We will continue to strive for truth, God being our guide.”
