275 buses’ scandal: Freddie Blay claims CHRAJ’s suit is incompetent

The national chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Frederick Blay, has described as incompetent, the suit brought against him by the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ).

According to Blay, he is at a loss as to why CHRAJ claims he has disrespected or failed to appear before it as is being claimed.

He went on to say that neither he nor his office has received any summons from CHRAJ, and as such, he is at a loss as to why he is being charged with contempt.

YEN.com.gh understands that CHRAJ filed a motion to commit Blay for contempt at the High Court, after it claimed the NPP chairman failed to respond to several requests to provide it with information about the 275 buses he donated to his party’s constituencies ahead of the NPP delegates conference in 2018.

Per a report by Citinewsroom.com, CHRAJ attached document showing that Blay had received the motion but failed, refused and or neglected to oblige the commission with his comments as requested.

Blay maintained that CHRAJ has made no efforts to contact him, as the case has rather been the opposite.

He went on to say that he has done nothing wrong and is therefore not a fugitive from justice.

In July 2018, reports of vote-buying surfaced online as Blay took delivery of 100 out of 275 buses which he procured for NPP’s constituency offices.

Blay defended his action by saying he facilitated the purchase of the minibuses with the backing of the party, and reportedly made a down payment of $3 million, which constitutes 30% of the total cost of 11.4 million dollars for the 275 cars.
