The National executives of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has ordered the immediate past executives of the party to return all official properties and belongings of the party.
It is believed that some former executives are still in possession of vehicles and other assets.
However, General Secretary of the party, Justin Kodua Frimpong, has issued a memo to all former regional and constituency executives to return all items in their custody to the respective offices within one week.
“This has been necessitated by widespread concerns and complaints by the current executives to the effect that some of their predecessors (i.e immediate past executives) still have in their custody, vehicles and other items that were allocated to the party offices to enable executives perform their administrative functions and responsibilities efficiently.
“Thus, the unavailability of these assets has rendered the newly elected executives of the Party handicapped in the performance of their duties, which development is adversely impacting the conduct of Party activities.
“As has been the norm, executives are permitted to use assets of the Party but cannot assume ownership of same upon leaving office,” It said in the memo dated Tuesday, August 2, 2022.
In the light of the foregoing, the General Secretary therefore, instructed the Party by the notice, and giving them “a one-week ultimatum to all such former executives to comply with this directive.”
Justin Kodua Frimpong thereby entreated all regional executives to supervise the retrieval of assets from former constituency executives while the National Treasurer will supervise that at the regional levels.
