GPRTU Central Regional Chairman Interdicted
The Management of Ghana Private Road and Transport Union (GPRTU) has interdicted its Central Regional Chairman, Alhaji Artey, over alleged financial malfeasance, embezzlement of funds, constitutional breaches among others since he took office in the region.
A petition was presented to the management of GPRTU by three of his management team namely, the Vice Chairman, the 1st Trustee and the 2nd Trustee to remove the chairman from office on financial malfeasance and dictatorship rule.
Based on the Petition, the management of GPRTU met with the Central Regional Chairman, Alhaji Artey and upon thorough deliberation, the chairman was asked to step down to allow investigation to take place in order to ascertain the veracity of the allegations.
According to the National Communication Director of GPRTU, Alhaji Abass Imoro, the complaints came as a shock to management and therefore a crunch meeting was held at the region with all members involved in which a decision was taken to interdict the Central Regional chairman to allow further investigation.
Alhaji Abass further said the complaints made in the Petition must be dealt with accordingly and so, the committee to be form would scrutinize and do detailed investigation on the matter and if the chairman is found culpable, management would take a decision.
He therefore called for calm in the office at the Central region as investigation would commence soon since a committee is yet to be formed to ascertain the truth.
“we asked all employees of GPRTU in the central region to remain calm and focus as the committee to be form would do a thorough job to ascertain the truth of the matter”, he added.
