Leakynews.net is receiving intelligence that the price value of each of the ten Mazda Demio vehicles presented by the sitting MP for Bantama Constituency to each electoral area in 2015 was far below what delegates claim he quoted as GH20,000.
Nana Boakye who is the NPP secretary for Kokoso Asubonten electoral area has exposed that after all electoral areas had received the vehicles under a work and pay/hire-purchase condition, they carried out background checks and discovered that the true market value then (2015) was GH 12,000 each.
“…but when the MP had meeting with us he told us that the price of each car was GH20,000…so that means he will gain a profit of GH8,000 on each and that times ten is GH 80,000”, he revealed.
Yesterday Wednesday 10th June 2020 on Nhyira Fm’s morning show program hosted by Kofi Asante, the Member of Parliament Hon Daniel Okyem Aboagye was questioned by the host as to whether the electoral areas are making payment for the vehicle. This was his response; “…After one year I gave it to them for free…some were paying. The highest amount was GH 9,000 out of GH20,000. Some even didn’t pay up to GH2000…”.
A strongly worded rebuttal by Nana Boakye reveals otherwise.
In an interview with www.leakynews.net Nana Boakye said, “…Ahenbronomu 1 paid 141milion old Ghana cedis, Kokoso asubonten paid over 100million old Ghana cedis, Abrepo junction paid over 100million old Ghana cedis… I mean the least of the payment was 9,000. If the MP should say we are lying, he should go with us including the media to ECOBANK where we were making our weekly deposits and request for a statement to that effect. The least payment was GH 9,000”.
STATE OF VEHICLES
He disclosed further that the all insurance stickers covering the vehicles have expired and that the cars have been out of business for over three months now.
“During the 2015 NPP parliamentary primaries, Hon Daniel Okyem Aboagye , as part of his campaign promise donated 10 mazda demio taxis, one (1) to the ten electoral areas with an understanding that should he win, the electoral area will take the cars but if he loses, he will take the cars away. After winning the primaries, our Hon member asked us (each electoral area) to pay on hire purchases at a price of GH20,000 of which some of the electoral areas including Bohyen 1, Bantama 1, North Suntreso just to mention but a few have honored the obligations“, he narrated.
