The Acting Ashanti Regional Organiser of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Daniel Agyenim Boateng is in the grips of the Pankrono police for engaging in recruitment scam.
He was arrested on Wednesday October 4, 2017 after some members of his party reported the case to the police for deceiving them.
Mr Boateng who was granted bail upon some regional executives’ plea is accused of taking GHC11,400 from the NPP members with the promise of offering them ‘juicy’ jobs in Akufo-Addo’s government as well as the security service.
Writing his statement, he admitted taking the monies.
The aggrieved NPP members are calling on the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to relieve him of his post as the Regional Director for Metro Mass Transit (MMT).
The regional leadership of NPP is tight-lipped about the incident.
