Claims of Akim Swedru delegates enrollment on Controller payroll false says Kennedy Osei Nyarko

New Patriotic Party (NPP) member of Parliament for the Akim Swedru constituency in the Eastern Region, Kennedy Osei Nyarko, has described recent claims by Member of Parliament for Bongo Constituency, Edward Bawa, that the Controller and Accountant-General’s Department has enrolled delegates in his constituency on its payroll as false and unfounded.

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Bongo constituency lawmaker, Edward Bawa, made the allegation during an interview on TV3’s Big Issues programme. However, in a post on his Facebook wall, Kennedy Osei Nyarko called well-meaning Ghanaians to treat the claims with the contempt they deserve.

“As a Member of Parliament for the Akyem Swedru constituency, I would like to address the recent allegations regarding the Controller and Accountant General putting my delegates on the payroll for election purposes. I want to clarify that these allegations are entirely false and unfounded.

“I want to emphasize that none of my delegates are on the payroll to influence the election. It is crucial to maintain the integrity of our democratic process and ensure that elections are conducted fairly and transparently” the Akim Swedru MP Kennedy Osei Nyarko said.

“I urge everyone to be cautious of false information and to verify the facts before jumping to conclusions. Let us focus on the issues that truly matter to the people and work together to build a better future for our constituency,” he added.

The Bongo Constituency, MP, Edward Bawa, in his interview, accused the Controller and Accountant-General Kwasi Kwaning-Bosompem of putting delegates in the Akim Swedru constituency on salary for the past two years in preparation for his contest as the MP for the constituency.

“Currently, as we sit, on live radio, you know the current sitting Controller and Accountant-General Kwasi Kwaning-Bosompem is vying to contest one of the seats in the central region. Every delegate has been put on salary, and he has been doing that for about two years.

“That’s what I heard. So yesterday, you had a situation where people were now texting and saying incoming MP. I say if you have a situation where you control my money, there must be a law on how you deal with some of these things. Everybody is seeing it, and nobody is questioning it,” Edward Bawa alleged.
