The General Secretary of the Peoples National Convention (PNC), has petitioned the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police to investigate the 2020 Presidential Candidate of the party and its National Chairman.
In a petition, Janet Asana Nabla asks that David Asibi Apasera and Moses Dani Baah be probed for alleged financial malfeasance to the tune of Ghcf1.7million.
In the petition, Janet Nabla explains that the money had been raised to support the party in the 2020 election. However, the two had withdrawn and spent it without her knowledge and approval.
“This act was in clear violation of Article 49(b)(8) which requires that a NEC meeting is held to deliberate on issues concerning elections, fundraising, management of funds for the national elections both for the presidential and parliamentary candidates including strategizing and executing the campaigns for both the Presidential candidate and the parliamentary candidates of the party,” she wrote.
An amount of GH₵150,000.00 was raised to pay party offices’ rent across the country, this amount was deposited in the party’s account where Mr Apasera and Mr. Dani Baah have reportedly withdrawn the amount without the knowledge of the Secretary and have not used the money for the intended purpose.
The two are in possession of the party’s cars which the petition is requesting to be retrieved.
Already, the two have been suspended by the National Executive Committee of the party over the alleged malfeasance.
The high-profile petitioner attached supporting documents and the phone numbers of the accused party leaders.
“Attached are the supporting documents to help you carry on with the investigation. The party is hopeful that your august institution would investigate the two and prosecute them accordingly,” Janet Asana Nabla wrote.
It would be recalled that earlier, the two leaders had rather announced the suspension of the General Secretary after Mrs. Nabla had raised issues with the alleged malfeasance.
However, the party NEC backed her and her reinstatement was announced.
