One of the Food Suppliers Association’s members made a heartbreaking plea, detailing the terrible repercussions she may face if she went home without getting the money the National Buffer Stock Company (NAFCO) owed her.
The woman, who is said to be in her mid-40s, pleaded with President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo to promptly address the NAFCO, who will plan to pay them, the food providers, in an interview with Accra-based UTV.
All I’ll say, Mama, is that Nana has to pay more attention to us. He ought to pay the buffer firm money so that they can also give us our portion and let us go home. It’s not nice where we’re sleeping,” she remarked.
The woman explained that she may lose her life since the person she owed money to had threatened to murder her if they ever met. Her misery was clear in her voice.
“If I go home, someone will kill me; in fact, he will shoot me to death,” the man said. the manner in which he threatened me. He and I had collaborated for a long time, and he was forced to travel to Koforidua as a result of us. I don’t even feel at ease on the phone, much alone get to show my face,” the woman highlighted.
The food provider revealed that the situation had a negative impact on her physically and emotionally, and that she now carries medicine with her wherever she goes as a result of the strain and stress that had grown over time.
As my only kind of medication, I always bring packets with me wherever I go. Nana should pay more attention to us since there is strain on us, she stated while sobbing in grief.
The Free Senior High School program’s Food Suppliers Association members have been picketing outside the National Buffer Stock Company’s office recently in protest of the business’s inability to pay them two years’ worth of arrears.
To voice their complaints to the NAFCO officials, several members resorted to staying up late at the workplace.
