Members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Ashanti region are confused as to why the vehicle of the regional Director of the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) is used in escorting illegal logging vehicles.
The Toyota Pick-up vehicle of Mr. Kwabena Nsenkyire was seen escorting three fully loaded trucks of sawn logs at Duayaw-Nkwanta which shows they might have been felled in one of the forests there.
His official pick-up vehicle with registration number GV 1113-14 was slowly driving behind the trucks and blowing its siren to make the illegal operation an official one.
Tongues have been wagging since the photograph of the said vehicle escorting the logs to an unknown destination hit social media and courting shame for the New Patriotic Party Government.
Even though Mr. Nsenkyire has attempted a defense of his supposed illegal activity, many more questions have come up which he is yet to answer.
In an interview with Oheneba Nana Asiedu of Fox Fm, he stated that he, as NADMO boss requested the logs to help the some in some districts in the region whose roofs had been ripped off.
Of particular mention was the ‘Manso Nkwanta Educational Office and and other schools’ which had their roofs ripped off as a result of heavy rains hence the need for the logs.
His office therefore thought it wise to solicit for support in that regard to get the logs to help.
However deep throat sources in the Ashanti regional NADMO office have denied any knowledge of the whereabouts of the logs.
The logs which he claimed were solicited to help the Manso Nkwanta Educational Office and some other schools cannot be found there.
Again, our source revealed that soliciting for support to roof building of any nature is not part of their responsibility.
“What we are aware is that Getfund funded that project so am not sure which other one he went to beg for and from whom?” Our source revealed.
rawgist.com is also aware of a large forest zone in Manso Nkwanta so why did he have to go as far as a forest in Mankranso?
Members of his own party are are so embarrassed that they have to be defending another scandal which will derail the popularity of the party in the region especially, and across the country.
