Edward Michael Ennin, a former New Patriotic Party (NPP) for Obuasi East has claimed that the Office of the Special Prosecutor has invited him over claims that government houses priced at a million dollars are being sold at between US$300,000 and US$400,000 to party members.
The former New Patriotic Party (NPP) for Obuasi East has alleged that government houses priced at a million dollars are being sold at between US$300,000 and US$400,000 to party members. He lamented in a radio interview yesterday that values that the NPP traditionally stood for had significantly eroded leaving behind amassing of illicit wealth and state funds by leaders and the rank and file of the party.
On the specific allegation, Hon. Edward Michael Ennin that he had receipts of some of the said sales and was ready to publish same if need be. “If they continue daring some of us like this, the party will end up in a ditch,” he cautioned those calling his bluff on the issue he had earlier raised on the show.
But speaking to SOMPA NEWS, the MP who is also a close ally of Mr. John Alan Kwadwo Kyeremateng said he would honour the invitation in the next coming weeks adding that he was not afraid.
He told SOMPA MIDA-DAY NEWS on 4th October 2023, that he would avail himself for any form of investigation to support the Office of the Special Prosecutor according to the information in his possession.
He indicated that the Office of the Special Prosecutor should have done their secret investigations by scheming to buy some of the lands rather than to invite him for information he has received from his quarters some time back insisting the issue had happened some months ago which could make the investigations very difficult.
He asserted, “Just as I am speaking to you the Office of Special Prosecutor has invited me few hours after making the disclosure in the media. Let me also say that I would not want to make further comments on the scandal until I honour the invitation. I am not scared to help the Office since I am going to tell them what I know for now but I think they could have done themselves good by instituting an investigation into the issue before inviting me and get their won information.”
He however assured the media that he would make the day of the invitation to appear before the Office of the Special Prosecutor open to the media as well as the outcome of the discussions.
