The speaker of parliament has directed the Ministry of Local Government And Rural Development to provide information of the where about of the common fund Atwima Mponua.
This directive came to the flow of parliament when the MP of Atwima Mponua asked why there have been undue delay in the release of his funds.
The Minister of Local Government and Rural Development could not respond to why the payments have been delayed. The Minister Collins Dauda in responds stated that “there were no outstanding payment to be made to the Honorable Member so far as our records are concerned.”
According to Mr Isaac Asiamah the MP of Atwima Mponua several attempts to get the District Chief Executive to disburse his share of the common fund has yield now result for ten months now. He believes it is an attempt to sabotage him as the money is needed for certain projects.
In an interview he said “because of power people try to do certain things to frustrate the system. Most of the MP’s are going through such challenges and it is not the best because the money if for the people. This is happening in most districts. You will be here working for Ghana, and you expect the DCE to do his part but they don’t do so it is very frustrating.”
To this the speaker of parliament Edward Doe Adjaho has instructed the Minister to ensure the matter is resolved and to provide documented evidence to that effect.
