Workers of the Ghana Food Distribution Corporation (GFDC) whose appointments were terminated following the divestiture of the corporation in June 2004, have made a “distress call” the government to come to their aid as soon as possible.

They complained that their entitlements have still not been paid, making their lives very miserable.

Speaking to the Times,Times, a former employee, J.B. Prempeh, said that many of his colleagues have died, apparently out of frustration, while others have suffered divorces because they could not cater for their families.

He said that although a copy of letters terminating their appointment was given to the Chief Accountant requesting him “to finalise your statements of account to enable all entitlements due to you to be paid”, nothing has been paid.

“The only option left now, is to cry loudly for the government to come to our aid to stop our homes from breaking up,” Mr.Prempeh said.
