Governance expert and lecturer at the University of Ghana, Legon, Dr. Okyere Ankrah has heaped tons of curses on the head of workers at Tema Oil refinery (TOR) who have reportedly stolen ¢10.4 million worth of cables among other products.
After a preliminary investigation, some workers were reportedly interdicted by the company’s Interim Management Committee but Dr. Okyere Ankrah believes that is not enough.
While sharing his opinion on the subject of Okay FM, he cursed the culprits while saying it’s this sort of action that continues to inconvenience the masses who are plagued by penury despite working hard daily.
“They are at home freely enjoying food and television meanwhile they should be cooling off in a guardroom. Instead of that, they have been interdicted, such a big English word that my grandmother does not understand,” fumed.
“See how people are suffering in this country. Ghanaian women wake up as early as 2 am just to go out and make ends meet. After hustling in the sun all day these poor women are levied and when the money is raised for national development these unscrupulous employees end up stealing everything.
When you are paid at the end of the month and you look at the tax deducted from your payslip you ask exactly where such monies go. Lecturers declared strike because of money. But do you think the stolen money could have been prevented by the strike?” he questioned.
“I pray they all suffer from an incurable disease. Whatever property do acquire with the stolen money, may it be destroyed. I curse them and I am doing this with pain,” he stated.
