Communicators of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) have commenced a strike action today, January 30.
The move according to a communicator who spoke to GHOne News on anonymity is to protest the non-payment of monthly allowances to communicators by the party.
According to him, communicators can no longer continue to defend corrupt deals of the government on empty stomachs.
He said hunger is killing them.
