The spokespersons for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Bono Region have initiated an open-ended strike, seeking transparency regarding the sale of the Bono Regional Coordinating Council’s tipper trucks, front loaders, and graders.

During a media briefing in Sunyani, the spokespersons expressed their frustration over the unsuccessful attempts to obtain auction details for the said vehicles and machinery.

The regional communicators’ representative, Abubakari Yakubu, pointed out that the machinery could have been deployed for road improvement projects within the region.

He stated that the communication officers will refrain from participating in media engagements until they receive satisfactory information about the recipients and the rationale behind the sale of the equipment.

“Somewhere last week, before the region woke up, these important trucks have been auctioned out to God knows who and why. It is therefore on the back of the development that we as communication officers in the Bono region, all of us, 12 of us, have decided to pursue this matter and demand answers from the Bono Regional Coordinating Council.

“Who authorised the auction of the trucks and why? We demand the answer and also, why did authorities park the trucks when the assemblies needed them for reshaping and other activities?

“These are our questions and we shall wait for the answers before we go back to the studios. As communication officers, we will not sit on radio to defend this party until this matter has been resolved. No communicator from the NPP will defend the party in the region until the questions are adequately answered.”

Efforts by Citi News to get details from the Bono Regional Coordinating Council on why the equipment were auctioned have been unsuccessful.
