Politics of Sunday, 18 August 2019
An active member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) popularly known as Hajia Fati has alleged that most of the cars meant for auction to the general public are sold out to family and friends by the Chief of Staff Frema Opare and others.
According to her, the NPP the Committee in charge of selling auctioned cars to the public, led by Madam Frema Opare, dropped her name because of their “family and friends dealings.”
Hajia Fati’s comments follow threats by Auditor-General to surcharge officials of GRA for failing to account for over 1,000 vehicles auctioned by the Auctions Unit of the Customs Division of GRA between 2015 and 2017.
“If they want the honest truth then they should know that, the auctioned cars are being sold to family and friends like groundnuts and maize. Nana Obiri is very greedy with the selling of the cars because he had nothing when he returned back to the party, if party members are not careful, Nana Obiri will collapse the party, he even said Nana Addo cannot be president, I don’t know why he is brought back by the Chief of Staff to destroy the party,” she said.
