- Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa and other MPs including Zebilla MP, Cletus Avoke, owe the Metro Mass Transport company ¢1.5m
- According to the PR of the company, George Krobea, the debt owed by these legislators is crippling the transport company
- Meanwhile, the MP for North Tongu has vehemently denied the allegations
The PRO of the Metro Mass Transport company has accused Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa and other Members of Parliament of crippling the company.
George Krobea has revealed that a number of legislators are owing the state-owned transport company a huge amount of money.
He said the debt amounts to GH¢1.5 million, adding that Mr. Ablakwa and the MP for Zebilla, Cletus Avoke, are among the debtors.
Mr. Krobea noted that the said debt has been outstanding since 2016 and has created a frosty relationship between the company and its partner, Goil.
“These debts are owed by individual Members of Parliament. And it is actually crippling the company,” he told Accra-based Joy FM.
Explaining how the MPs became debtors to the Metro Mass Transport company, Mr. Krobea said they hired buses for campaigns during the 2016 elections.
The hired buses, he said, have since not been paid for despite all efforts by management to retrieve the monies.
Meanwhile, Mr. Ablakwah has denied the allegations made by the PRO of the Metro Mass Transport company.
In a Facebook past, the North Tongu MP said he has fulfilled all his financial obligations and therefore does not owe the company.
“To the best of my knowledge, I have redeemed all obligations to the Metro Mass Transit Ltd.”
Mr. Ablakwa described the allegations against him as a “smear campaign” while threatening to take legal action.
