Confusion at ICU meeting in Tema

Tema, July 30, GNA- The issue over who should preside over an emergency meeting of the Tema branch of the Industrial and Commercial Workers Unoin (ICU) of the Trade Union Congress (TUC) on Wednesday at Tema generated into confusion.

While Mr Napoleon Kpoh General-Secretary of the ICU was pleading with journalists covering the meeting to excuse them because it "was a house affair", Mr Wilson Agana, Greater Accra regional chairman disagreed and wanted the press to remain.

This led to insults against each other but the delegates at the meeting restored peace for the meeting to begin. When Mr Kpo took the floor, he explained that he was chairing the meeting because he called for the meeting on some clarification of the Union's finances.

Mr Agana insisted that since he was the regional chairman he would chair the meeting.

Members of the press covering the meeting decided to leave to enable them to put their house in order.
