Disgruntled employees of the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) are not in favor of Professor Amin Alhassan, their director general, having his term extended.
They contend that Professor Amin Alhassan has managed the corporation inefficiently and that the institution will fail if his tenure is extended.
Red-clad irate workers waved banners both inside and outside the GBC building to express their displeasure and demanded that President Akufo-Addo remove the DG from office right away.
GBC’s Divisional Union Chairman, Samuel Nathaniel Kevor, emphasized that Professor Amin Alhassan has no mandate to remain in office because his contract expired on Sunday, October 1.
“Our Director General’s contract has expired on October 1, 2023. As a result, workers have resolved that we’ve given him a peaceful four-year tenure [but] we are not happy,’’ he said in an interview monitored by 1Family Radio.
“The company is deteriorating; things 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.”
