- He has asked the current government to investigate and prosecute the former transposrt minister
- He says she needs to answer questions relating to the bus branding scandal
- The former minister was condemned when she made some ethnocentric statements last year
The chairman of Eastern regional wing of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Bismark Tawiah Boateng, is calling for the prosecution and possible jailing of the former minister of transport, Dzifa Aku Attivor.
Boateng expressed his wonder at the fact that the former minister is still walking free, despite the scandal that rocked her ministry last year.
According to him, she needs to answer questions about the details of the bus branding story that ultimately led to her resignation from office.
The deal related to a contract awarded to Smarttys Management and Productions Ltd, owned by actress Sellasie Ibrahim.
It involved the branding of 116 buses of the Metro Mass Transport Limited, at a cost of GHc3.6m.
According to him, it was one of the prime reasons that the NDC lost the 2016 December elections.
The former minister is reported to have stated at a rally in April 2016 that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) was fond of jailing people of the Volta region.
She based her assertion on the events that transpired during the prosecutions of Dan Abodakpi and the late Victor Selormey.
Her comments sparked heated debates across the length and breadth of the country, with some people condemning her words.
