The immediate past Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) who served under President Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo Addo's administration have notified the Ghana Police of their intention to picket at the Jubilee House by the end of May.
Their decision to stage the protest stems from the government's failure to pay their salary differentials and other essential benefits that have been owed to them for the duration of their service as government appointees.
While other appointees have received their payments since 2021, the former MMDCEs claim that their entitlements remain unpaid. They emphasize that their objective is not to mock or belittle the government but rather to draw attention to the longstanding issue and urge the government to address their outstanding end-of-service benefits.
In a statement, the former MMDCEs expressed their hope that the government would consider their request for protection as they peacefully present their concerns at the Jubilee House. They underscored the importance of upholding democratic principles, allowing citizens to freely express their views through legal and constitutional means.
“We hope you will give favorable consideration to our request to bolster our credentials as a democratic country where the citizens freely express their views through legal and constitutional means. This will also underscore our image as a party that prides itself on upholding the tenets and principles of the Rule of Law,” the statement concluded.
