Obempeh Denies GH¢60,000.00 Claim For Asantehene Durbar
The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Yaw Owusu Obimpeh, has vehemently denied receiving cash of GH¢60,000.00 to bus people to the grand durbar held to climax the 15th anniversary celebration of the enthronement of the Asantehene.
He said he was completely shocked by the allegation, terming it ‘mischievous, wicked and evil’.
This was contained in a press statement, he issued in Kumasi in reaction to media reports that he (Obimpeh) together with two other party officials, the Regional Organizer and Deputy Regional Secretary, have come under intense pressure over the said money.
An Accra-based newspaper, ‘Today’, in its May 20 edition, claimed the three have irked the Presidency for failing to deliver the expected large crowd of people, for which they had collected the cash.
Mr. Obimpeh, however, in a terse statement, insisted that ‘this is totally false, a fiction – it has no iota of truth’.
‘I never received any such money and I find it hard to understand why anybody should be motivated to scandalize me. Telling lies about others to achieve whatever ends, is undignified and certainly not the right path to travel’, he added.
