A statement signed by Stephen Okudzeto, General Secretary of GPRTU and copied to Ghana News Agency in Accra on Tuesday, said the dissident members took the law into their own hands and invaded the secretariat, padlocked four offices and damaged one and drove out the staff and declared that ?they have made a coup de tat against the elected and incumbent national executives of the union. They further alleged that they had taken over the administration?.

It said: ?Article 29 of our union?s constitution provides any aggrieved member the opportunity to seek clearance and redress but unfortunately the members involved in the unlawful act?did none.?

The statement said their efforts were swiftly thwarted by the prompt action taken by the national officers and the Greater Accra Regional Police Command.

It said an emergency National Executive Council meeting was called and a decision was taken to issue out a query to the affected members to explain their conduct in writing.

?Management would also like to assure the public that the situation is under control and the elected national officers are still at post.?

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
