Some delegates for Bantama Constituency have informed Member of Parliament for the area Hon Daniel Okyem Aboagye to choose between two options.
“It is either he gives us the change of ownership documents covering all the ten vehicles he presented as part of his 2015 campaign package to the various electoral areas or refund payments made on them during the time they were under a hire-purchase /work and pay condition”, they have said.
Speaking to www.leakynews.net, Nana B, outspoken NPP delegate and secretary for Kokoso Asubonten electoral area vowed that they (delegates) will not hesitate to embark on every legal action to ensure that their monies are paid back should the incumbent member of parliament refuse to change the ownership the ten Mazda Demio taxis into the names of their respective electoral areas.
He briefed www.leakynews.net on the various amount of money which according to him were deposited weekly into an ECOBANK account by each electoral area, representing payments made to cover the cost of each vehicle given as GH 20,000.
“Ahenbronomu 1 paid 141 million old Ghana cedis, Kokoso Asubonten paid over 100 million old Ghana cedis, Abrepo Junction paid over 100 million old Ghana cedis. The least amount paid was GHs 9,000…and even I am sure those who fall within the GHs 9,000 are those who had problems with their vehicles such as accidents…The MP opened a car account at ECOBANK in his name and we were conditioned to make weekly deposits of GHs 200 into it”, he revealed.
“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.
