Some National Democratic Congress (NDC) members of Parliament demand the immediate resignation of the controller and accountant general.
The command comes after Mr. Kwasi Kwaning-Bosompem, the controller and accountant general, decides to aspire to the New Patriotic Party’s Akim Swedru constituency parliamentary primaries.
The government’s chief accountant will be challenging for the seat in the Akim Swedru constituency.
After picking up the nomination forms, Mr. Kwaning-Bosompem remains in office despite calls for his resignation.
Some NDC MPs are saying it is intolerable for the controller and accountant general to still be in office while the NPP MPs are mute on the issue.
Speaking to the media, the honorable Murtala Mohammed, the MP for Tamale Central constituency in the Northern Region, stated the need for Mr. Kwaning-Bosompem to resign and also be investigated by the special prosecutor.
“I expected that by now the office of the special prosecutor would have commenced some investigation into the matter; if he indeed had some delegate in his constituency on payroll, how was he paying them?”
“For him to engage in partisan politics and still hold his office is just incredible because, frankly speaking, I was expecting that even if you wanted to contest, he would have resigned immediately.” Hon. Mohammed clarified.
He also questioned why the president has not asked Mr. Kwaning-Bosompem to resign and that “doesn’t make sense” to him.
