The Presiding Member for Suame Municipal Assembly (SMA), Hon Maxwell Ofosu Boakye, has asked Former Presiding Member of Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) Nana Kofi Senya, to accord due respect to Members of Parliament and desist from fabricating falsehood against them.
According to him, the allegations leveled against the MPs including Hon Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu, MP for Suame, on misappropriation of Common fund and HIPC funds are false adding HIPC funds are not even in existence.
Hon Ofosu Boakye, was reacting to allegations being peddled by Nana Kofi Senya, New Suame Assembly Member, on misappropriations of various funds allocated to the assemblies especially KMA.
He attributed the desperations of Nana Senya, to his inability to grab the positions of Suame Municipal Chief Executive and Convener of Works Committee of the assembly .
“If you were not given the position of Suame MCE and lost works Committee’s election, it doesn’t pave way for you to ridicule MPs by issuing baseless allegations out of bitterness”. Hon Ofosu Boakye said.
He challenged Nana Senya to quote specific provisions under the procurement Act and the financial Management Act which have been breached by MPs including Suame MP.
Hon Ofosu Boakye, who is the Special Assistant for Suame MP and Majority Leader, described it as an ignorance and deliberate ploy to mislead Ghanaians adding, MPs have never been members of the Assemblies tender committee.
” Nana Senya knows very well the claim that Hon. Osei Kyei -Mensah -Bonsu Awarded a contract of Ghc 40,000 is a complete falsehood saying MPs do not award contracts”. Hon Ofosu Boakye said.
He disclosed that Suame MP, issued a letter, requesting KMA to release Ghc 25,000 from the MPs common fund to Nana Senya to renovate the Kotoko toilet facility, which he said passed through due processes adding the contract was awarded to contractor by Nana Senya himself.
