The Ashanti Regional Executive of the Convention PeopleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Party (CPP) has dismissed speculations that its chairman, Mr Samuel K. Danso, has been sacked from office.
The executive asked party supporters throughout the country to treat rumours that Mr. Danso has been expelled from the CPP with contempt.
The denial that was contained in a statement signed by Mr. Daniel Essien, the regional secretary, said it was unfortunate that some aggrieved members of CPP were bent on destroying the image of the party.
It also denied allegations by some people that the regional chairman had embezzled party funds and explained that no such money had been entrusted to the regional CPP secretariat by the CPP national headquarters for party activities.
The statement said Ã¢â‚¬Å“Mr. Kwasi Prempeh, a leading member of the CPP raised funds to support the partyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s programme ahead of the 2008 General election and that the monies were duly accounted for and records are there to testify as to how the monies were usedÃ¢â‚¬Â.
It debunked rumours that Mr. Danso had hijacked the partyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s vehicle for his personal use, explaining that the said pick-up vehicle belonged to Dr Paa Kwesi Nduom, the CPP flag-bearer for Election 2008, who ordered the regional executive to return the vehicle to him after the elections.
The statement appealed to well-meaning supporters of CPP to remain focused and ignore any attempt to divide the party.
