THE management of China Geo Engineering Corporation, the company working on the Komfo Anokye Roundabout – Abuakwa Road Project, which include the Sofoline Interchange in Kumasi, has debunked reports of a delay in the completion of the project as a result of workers’ agitation.
It said the projects were on course and that allegations of workers’ concerns over certain grievances were untrue.
A statement signed by the Executive Project Manager of the company, Mr Zhao Yexuan, said the management was aware of an anonymous letter purported to have come from the local union of the company giving a seven-day notice to the management to react to the workers’ concerns over certain grievances raised at a meeting held about a week ago.
According to the statement, the said letter from the workers threatened management of the consequences that would follow if it failed to react to the concerns.
It said the letter had no basis whatsoever and should be treated with the contempt it deserved.
The statement indicated that the executive, of the local union had in a letter dated November 3, 2009 and signed by its secretary, Mr Rudolf Asoalla, dissociated the union from the anonymous letter. Consequently, the statement said, the contents of that letter could not threaten the project in any way.
Meanwhile, work on the interchange is progressing steadily.
