Threatening to Picket over Unpaid Arrears, National Food Suppliers

With nearly a year’s worth of unpaid arrears, the National Food Suppliers Association says it will shortly give the government an ultimatum.

To demand payment of the GH¢200 million they were due for 2022, association members protested at the National Food Buffer Stock Company’s location in August 2023.

During an interview with Citi News, the association’s spokeswoman, Kwaku Amedume, bemoaned the impact of the postponement on the welfare of participants.

“We are yet to hear from the government. If they call us and resolve the issues, why not? We want things to be done well and in the right way. If they call us and are able to resolve the issues, we will not go through with our picket, but if they don’t, we have to go on the picket to show how bad things are and how we are affected.

We are suppliers, and we have been with the schools for almost 20 to 30 years, and we are many and employ many people, so cutting us out would be like creating a very huge unemployment in the country.”
