The national organiser of the ruling NPP, Sammi Awuku has rubbished concerns by the NDC that Chairman of the ruling party should be investigated for his ability to guarantee for a loan faculty to procure 275 buses for all the NPP.
According the NPP Organiser, even he, without clout and financial muscle, was able to purchase 200 motorbikes to all constituency youth organisers and wondered why Chairman Freddie Blay who owns a media house, a law firm, has been Member of Parliament and Second Deputy Speaker for years cannot marshal resources to procure 275 vehicles.
Sammi Awuku said prior to the NPP Congress held at Koforidua, one of the criteria for a national chairman aspirant was for the aspirant to show proof of being either resourceful or has the resources to push the party’s agenda adding that Freddy has been able to prove that.
His comments come in the wake of criticisms against the newly elected chairman Freddie Blay for funding the procurement of some 275 vehicles for each of the NPP constituencies.
The vehicles procured at a cost of $11 million are to be operated by the State Transport Company with a percentage of proceeds paid to the NPP constituency offices coffers.
