275 Buses: Probe Blay – Amoako Baah to BNI, EOCO
Dr Richard Amoako Baah, an aspiring National Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has asked the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) and the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) to investigate his fellow aspirant Freddie Blay who has procured 275 buses for the party.
Mr Blay had promised ahead of the NPP’s delegates’ conference in Koforidua on Saturday, 7 July that he will gift each constituency of the party, a bus.
Accordingly, 100 of those buses have arrived in the country with the remaining expected soon.
Touching on the funding for the buses, Mr Blay told journalists on Wednesday, 4 July 2018 that: “A financial institution is helping us”.
“We’re taking a bank facility to do so. It’s self-paying… We do so for and for every constituency. It’s not about if they vote for me first before I do it. The buses are in the country. They’re in the harbour.”
But speaking on Ghana Yensom on Accra 100.5FM hosted by Chief Jerry Forson on Friday, 6 July, Dr Amoako Baah said: “The EOCO and the BNI must come in and investigate the source of funding for these buses. Today the NPP will say the buses were procured by the party, tomorrow you hear Freddie Blay saying he is buying the buses for the party.”
“This calls for the intervention of the BNI and the EOCO so we all know what the actual information is.”
