One hundred and ninety-three District Directors of the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) have sued the Organisation and its Director General, Eric Nana Agyemang-Prempeh over what they described as illegal demotion and transfer.
The workers claim their demotion and transfers were done without recourse to the conditions of Service of NADMO and in contravention of the Public Service Commission’s Regulation, hence want the court to reverse the decision.
According to the workers, the Director General of NADMO, Eric Nana Agyemang-Prempeh in January 2018 issued appointment notices to some New Patriotic Party executives, with lower ranks, to take over from them as acting district directors while they were still at post.
They were given a day’s notice to report to their new duty post or face dismissal should they fail to comply and were not even given transfer grant.
They are praying the court to pronounce as unlawful, null and void, the supposed appointment of acting district directors not having been done according to laid down rules and conditions of service and not being in consultation with the public services commission, hence same must be reversed.
The aggrieved workers want the court to issue an order that their purported transfer not having been effected in accordance with the rules and regulations governing the conditions of the service of NADMO is unlawful, and thus null and void.
The Court has fixed February 27 to hear the injunction.
