-NPP communicators in the Ashanti Region have accused party executives of hoarding cash meant for them
-The cash is alleged to have been given to them by the party hierarchy to be shared to serial callers for their contribution in the 2016 General Elections
-The Communications Director of the Party in the region has rubbished the claims
Some members of the NPP communications team of the New Patriotic Party in the Ashanti Region have alleged that the Director of Communications for the region, Mr. Kwasi Kyei Danso has kept an undisclosed amount of money that was supposed to be used to reward communication members for their role in the 2016 elections.
Speaking on Kumasi-based Fox FM, some angry members of the communications team alleged that Mr. Kwasi Kyei Danso pocketed money that was supposed to be used to buy airtime for the members to be able to do their work.
The aggrieved communication members, led by a popular serial caller called Oga Willie called on the National Executives to investigate their claims and get the Director of communications in the region to refund monies that were due them.
He revealed that in the run up to the December 2016 elections, Honorable Collins Owusu Amankwa of Manhyia North gave the Communications Team Three Thousand Ghana Cedis to buy phone credit; an amount which has not been accounted for by the director.
He added that another Ten Thousand Ghana Cedis that was coming from the heads of the party as reward money for the work they put in to ensure the victory of the NPP has also not been accounted for.
Oga Willie indicated that when they confronted Mr. Kwasi Kyei Danso about the money, he did not give them a favorable answer.
However, Mr. Kwasi Kyei Danso who was also speaking on the radio interview rubbished claims that he had hoarded any such money and called the bluff of his team members.
