Economic insecurity is currently staring at the faces of most Ghanaians. Even the government has run to the International Monetary Fund in the face of near economic bankruptcy. Demonstrations and Industrial strikes have set in. Four pre-tertiary teacher unions have already embarked on strike. The Ghana Medical Association, Public Services Workers Union and Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwifery Association have all alerted of their impending strike.

As government fights to keep their labor unions working, Johnnie Hughes has warned of another massive strike. He explained that over 3000 officers of the Customs Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority are about to also strike. Their grievances relate to promotion alongside other pertinent issues. He bemoaned that outrageous pass marks have been set to deny the officers promotions and this has caused agitations in the Customs Division.

“If they decide to go on strike Ghana will lose revenue at the ports. They collect about 984 million cedis a day. The GRA expects that they should get about 80 billion in 2022, with their least target being 20 billion. If they go on a strike even for a day Ghana will lose over 900 million at least. They are the same people who check on cargo at the ports and at the borders. Imagine what will happen now that terrorists are crossing the border. Don’t wait for them to go on strike because you send people to beg them” Johnnie said.

Johnnie called on Ken Ofori Atta, Col. Damoah and others to do their work and settle the grievances of the Customs Division of the GRA. He noted that the government should wait for this strike before they send senior citizens to plead on behalf of government.
