NDC PC FOR KROWOR FRAUDULENTLY ACQUIRING NALAG RESOURCES.
We have noticed with utmost shock, how Agnes Naa Mono Lartey, the ruling National Democratic Congress’ parliamentary candidate for Krowor constituency is fraudulently benefiting from her illegal position as NALAG General Secretary.
It is more shocking to know that Agnes Naa Mono Lartey is fraudulently using NALAG vehicles, fuel, drivers, financial resources, etc on a political campaign. This is crookedness.
An ash Nissan patrol with registration number GE 6161-Y and a black Toyota Avensis saloon car also with registration number GT 8853-11 are all in her possession, undeservedly and dishonestly, and further weakening the vehicles on a campaign trail. This same woman, is criminally using the services of the driver at the NALAG secretariat, who is paid from NALAG, as a campaign driver. The driver, known as Mr. Ottoo, has for several months been off from official duties and has since been used by the NDC Parliamentary candidate. This is fraudulent. The NALAG constitution vehemently frowns on.
Article 16 clause 8 of the NALAG constitution stipulates clearly that “The appointment of the General Secretary shall be automatically terminated if he or she files to contest National Presidential elections or Parliamentary elections on the ticket of a political party”. It is interesting to note that the National Executive Council of NALAG whose responsibility it is to see to the vacation of office of the General secretary have, for the purposes of political expediency in favour of the NDC, refused to do ensure that.
Madam Agnes Naa Momo Lartey was elected as NDC Parliamentary candidate more than a year ago, she filed to contest the Krowor seat with the electoral commission a fortnight ago, the big question is, why is she still occupying the office of the General Secretary of NALAG?
We find this an attempt to defraud the state, milk the coffers of the association dry, deny members of local authorities the needed resources to improve local governance.
We are calling on Madam Agnes Naa Momo Lartey to as a matter of urgency, resign from her position as NALAG General Secretary, submit all assets in her possession to the secretariat, pay for the services of the driver, refund the amount drawn from the secretariat for fuel, allowances, etc, all at a cumulative compound interest rate.
We further call on all members of the National Executive Council of NALAG, under whose negligence the state has lost this much, to resign from their positions with immediate effect.
