CPP calls for audited report on dismissed DCEs

Mr Samuel Kwabena Danso, Ashanti Regional Chairman of the Convention
People's Party (CPP), has called on government to make public the
audited report on some dismissed District Chief Executives (DCEs)
before the December elections. He said this would go a long way in
giving credence to government's declaration of zero tolerance for
corruption, while enhancing transparency and accountability. Speaking
to the Ghana News Agency in Kumasi on Thursday, Mr Danso expressed the
worry that the report of the dismissed DCEs had still not been made

According to him, the delay was raising all kinds of suspicions and
urged government not to hesitate to come out with the report for
culpable officers to be brought to book. On the CPP's popularity in
the region, Mr Danso said following the party's massive campaigns,
many of the youth were picking up forms to be registered as members
adding that statistics available to his outfit indicated that over
30,000 youth had so far been registered. He explained that this
development had given the party the confidence that it was making
inroads in some supposedly strongholds of both the New Patriotic Party
(NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the region.

Mr Danso cautioned party supporters against hypocrisy, back-biting and
arrogance, noting that it was quite unfortunate that some leading
members of the party had resolved to sabotage the flagbearer, Dr Paa
Kwesi Nduom in his bid to make a different in the December polls. He
admonished aggrieved members, who could no longer stay in the
Nkrumaist fold to leave the party peacefully and not divide its ranks.
