The National Security has invited the leadership of the Abossey-Okai Spare Parts Dealers in Accra for a meeting on Thursday, December 7 over a brewing tension in the spare parts hub due to an upcoming election there.
The invitation comes on the back of a petition by the Association of Used Auto Parts Dealers of Abossey-Okai who are threatening to “spit fire” following a hint that one of the two vying for the chairmanship position has been disqualified.
The race is between Samuel Siaw Ampadu [Akonta] and Clement Boateng [Caboat], which the petitioners suspect the vetting committee is favouring the latter.
The Association in a press release signed by its Public Relations Officer, Eric Crentsil and copied to the Office of the President, Vice President, the Inspector-General of Police and other agencies and the media said “we will accept and work with whoever wins as the chairman. [But] if the election is schemed to favour one of the candidates, we shall spite fire in Abossey-Okai”.
The petitioners “called on the vetting committee to [make public the outcome] of the vetting to settle the doubts in the minds of traders and also reduce the tension in Abossey-Okai due to the delay”.
The Association called for government’s intervention “to avert any unforeseen circumstance that could hinder the development of Abossey-Okai and business in general”.
