Dr Kwabena Duffuor, the owner of Excellence In Broadcasting (EIB) Network has denied reports suggesting his media firm owes workers nine months salaries.
Some workers of the media organisation on Monday began a strike to demand payment of their unpaid arrears, daily Graphic reported.
However, speaking in an interview with Beatrice Adu on Thursday (7 July) Duffuor said the report is propaganda and an attempt to score cheap political points.
“I have so many companies. I have not had any information that they are not paying themselves … EIB has been there for how many years? For seven to eight years, why will the workers be there and not be treated well?”
“I don’t believe that, it is propaganda, and if I want to support the grassroots of my party (NDC ) what is wrong with that? Do you know what they go through? Go and see what they are going through in the rural areas …” he said.

Duffuor added “Since January they [EIB] have been paying them, there is no problem. It’s previous arrears they are talking about. So the management is handling that problem. Arrears and not payment of salaries…”
