The Management of the Northern Electricity Distribution Company (NEDCo) is demanding the arrest and prosecution of the youth of Tamale who went on a rampage at the company, vandalizing some of their offices.
Speaking exclusively to Energynewsafrica.com, the Corporate Communications Manager of NEDCo, Maxwell Kotoka was of the view that arresting the culprits and allowing the laws of Ghana to deal with them would serve as a deterrent.
He explained that the management of the company had met with Yaa-Naa to help fashion out strategies to ensure peace to enable their staff to resume work safely.
“Management wished that we had not reached or didn’t get to this far, but that is where we find ourselves. But as I have told you, we are in talks and negotiating with our staff and urging them to come back to work,” he noted.
According to him, the workers would have loved to go out to work but human lives are worth more than the revenue.
Mr Kotoka observed that the company was doing in-rolls until the setback but expressed the hope that a swift solution would be found for the challenges.
For the workers to resume work, he called for their safety, stressing that though the security agencies were protecting their offices, offering the same kind of service to workers would go a long way to help heal the process.
Meanwhile, the Overlord of the Dagbon State, Nidan Ya-Na Abubakar II, has advised the youth to desist from any action that would further disturb the peace of the Tamale metropolis.
