Assembly members of the West Mamprusi Municipal Assembly in the Northeast region on Tuesday October 20, postponed the hearing of the Special Budget to Friday October 24, after members unanimously rejected the auctioning of six vehicles belonging to the assembly.
The expected auction of the vehicles; white Nissan pickups with registration numbers GT-8306-W and GV-615S-S, blue Nissan pickup with registration number A-S2975-W, Ford pickup with registration number GR-3321-Z, and two other Nissan pickups without number plates were said to have not followed “due processes, transparency, and value for money”.
Members had held a meeting planned at approving the special budget for the assembly on Tuesday October 20. However, they vehemently rejected the sales of the six vehicles when it was announced, arguing they were not informed about the intent adding they are not “privy to the processes that went on”.
“The law frowns on not following due processes in the auctioning of assembly property”, they contented.
The forty five members of the house want the assembly to furnish them with a copy of the budget to enable a proper study of the document before Friday October 24.
Other issues tabled during the meeting included but not limited to crisis which has become a menace in the municipality.
The assembly members want the manager of the Ghana Water Company in the Northeast region to appear before the house with explanations to hikes in cost of water supply to homes.
