News Ghana’s checks around the various market places, have also proven that, there has been a very low patronage on meat products.
Speaking to some Ghanaians, they said to avoid consuming unwholesome meat products from slaughter houses, they either have to stop eating the products or reduce their intake.
Meanwhile, all veterinary para-professionals in the country on last Tuesday, laid down their tools in protest against what they refer to as unfair treatment being meted out to them by government.
Explaining their grievances to News Ghana, the National President of Veterinary Staff Association of Ghana Mr. Emmanuel Eshun said while all workers of the Health Sector classification have been given Interim Market Premium under the Single Spine Salary Structure (SSSS), veterinary para-professionals have been left on their fate.
He added that all their efforts to get authorities to address their concerns have yielded no positive results. Mr. Eshun said until their concerns are addressed they will not resume work.
Checks have revealed that animals slaughtered at various slaughter abattoirs across the country are not inspected, thereby putting the public at risk of consuming unwholesome meat.
