The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has threatened to file a lawsuit against Inusah Abdullai, the party’s immediately-past Savannah Regional Organizer, for neglecting to turn over a Nissan pick-up truck to the committee when he lost his job.
According to a letter from the NDC Regional Executive Committee’s lawyers, Mr. Abdullai has not given the regional executives access to the party vehicle despite repeated requests since November of last year.
He is accused of using the vehicle, which the former president of Ghana donated for party campaigns there as well as for other personal uses, for his own campaign during the most recent regional elections.
“The Regional Chairman, Regional Secretary, and other party executives have met with you on various occasions and have pleaded with you to turn over the aforementioned party car and property to the party,” the statement reads.
9. That since November of last year, you have refused to honorably surrender the aforementioned party vehicle for the purpose of conducting party business.
10.My instructions are that you immediately release the aforementioned vehicle in the condition in which it was delivered to you and the condition in which it was when you were using it to conduct your campaigns for your retention as a Regional Organizer by Tuesday, January 3, 2023, at the latest, lawyers for the executive Yelinzo Chambers said in a letter to Mr. Abdullai.
The letter warned that Mr Abdullai will be dealt with legally if he refused yet again to return the vehicle.
“…Upon receipt of this letter, if you refuse to release the said vehicle in good state to the party, I have instructions to initiate legal Proceedings against you without further recourse to you for which we shall seek to surcharge you to pay to the party, an amount of One Thousand Ghana Cedis ( GHC 1,000.00) per day for each day the Vehicle was unlawfully held by you since 13th November, 2022 till the date of Judgment, the said amount being the prevailing commercial vehicle rental rate of a pick-up or in the alternative, you procure a similar new pick-up to the Party or pay it’s equivalent market value.
It is hoped that you would do the needful to forestall litigation.
Be advised accordingly,” the letter stressed.
Mr Inusah Abdullai lost the Regional Organizer position of the party in the Savannah Region to Sorku Kassim Yahuza by a slim margin.
