Ignore MCE nominee’s cash claims, we’ve no business with him- Juaben Assembly members
Assembly Members in the Juaben Municipal Assembly of the Ashanti Region said they are not perturbed by the the falsehood peddled by the troubled Municipal Chief Executive nominee Sarfo Kantaka who is now threatening to pursue his collaborators for amounts of cash, he supposedly paid for his affirmation.
According to them, they have no business and transactions with the second-time rejected nominee.
Spokesperson for the Juaben Assembly Members Prince Oppong Kyekyeku underscored that as Assembly Members, they have no exchange with the rejected MCE nominee over his claims of ‘refund my money’ of supposed pay-offs he paid to individuals in ahead of his crucial affirmation.
As indicated by the Assemblyman for Bomfa Ahenbronu, no Assemblymember consented to an arrangement for the nominee to offer the said incentives for his affirmation.
“We have no deal with the troubled MCE nomine for the area,” he said.
He noted that what they got before the affirmation of the MCE nominee was a gift from good natured characters from the area and it stays thusly.
Mr. Oppong KyekyeKu said this in an interview monitored by African Editors .
“As Assembly Members, we’ve no legally binding concurrence with the troubled MCE for him to pay cash as a trade-off for his affirmation,” he added.
The MCE nominee is purportedly requesting a measure of GHS5000 pay off he paid to every individual from the Assembly to impact them to cast a ballot and affirm him as the MCE.
The police have, notwithstanding, in all actuality granted self-recognisance bail over his interest of the cash he offered as incentives to the Assembly Members.
Mr. Oppong Kyekyeku kept up with that the MCE nominee has separated the majority of the party adding that he has made it his stock in exchange not to work with individuals he saw to be allies of the Minister of Trade and Industry, Alan Kyerematen.
It’s the second time the MCE nominee failed to get endorsement from the assembly members.
