Stop the payment for Nana’s visit-OB Amoah to NR MMDCEs

O.B Amoah- Deputy Minister of Local Government says the MMDCEs should ignore the order to pay the money,adding that the President has specific budget meant for such expenditures

The Deputy Minister of Local Government, O.B Amoah, has directed Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) in the Northern Region not to honour contents of a letter requiring them to pay GH¢5,000 each towards the President’s 3-day tour of  the area.

All 26 MMDCEs from the region  were expected by the close of today October 2, 2017, to raise the amount which is meant for refreshment of persons who will converge at durbar grounds, in honour of the President who is expected to begin a 3-day tour of the region starting October 6, 2017.

The said amount was meant for refreshment of persons who will converge at durbar grounds, in honour of the President who is expected to begin a 3-day tour of the region starting October 6, 2017.

 

But the Minister said such payments have not been sanctioned by the Local Government Ministry, adding that the President has specific budget meant for such expenditures.He has accordingly advised MMDCEs to ignore the  letter from the Northern Regional Coordinating Council (NRCC).

 “When the President is touring a region, the Presidency has its own arrangement in terms of financing. For example, if he is touting the Northern Region which has 26 districts, the President cannot visit all these places. So, it is farfetched to demand that each MMDAs pays GH¢5,000 towards such a visit. If the Aufitor-General has to audit you, you can’t justify it because if you are in Savelugu and the President did not come to that place, how are you going to put it in your books. This is what makes the letter problematic,” he noted.

He added “We have not sanctioned any letter of such nature. The Presidency has its budget to cater for such expenditure. I was expecting the Regional Coordinator to know better or the Chief Director who wrote the letter to know the implications of what he is writing that you cannot impose such a directive on the MMDAs. This is not a party program for you to direct all constituency chairmen to make contributions towards such tour.”
