Mr Samson Adu Tieku is a meteorologist in the Ashanti region of Ghana, speaking on Kessben TV and radio’ “ Amansan Ntie” show, has made claims that one of the reasons they are going on strike is that the some instruments they use are getting outmoded which may lead to they giving wrong weather predictions.
Among other reasons is their allowances and according to him, they made their grievances known to the government and also gave the government up to February 16th to address their situation. But as at 15th February they had not have any response from the government hence their decision to go on strike.
He explained that, their work is so scientific and critical that, they always need modernized logistics as technology is advancing to be able to continue giving proper weather forecasts. Mr Samson also added that their work affects aircraft movements since they give information to pilots as to when it’s safe to fly or land.
We are almost entering raining season and these meteorologists will be needed more than ever. There it’s an appeal to the government to sit down with them so reach a consensus in order to avoid any misfortunes.
