I’VE NOT RECLAIMED NBSSI LOANS
-NPP Research Officer clears the air
Research Officer for the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in Offinso South in Ashanti region of Ghana, Bernard Opoku, has rubbished claims by some elements that he and other executive members of the party have masterminded the reclamation of the National Board for Small Scale Industries (NBSSI) Loans from some beneficiaries to fund the party’s political campaigns.
“It’s just bad news people are fabricating to undermine the government’s genuine support for small scale businesses. There was a peculiar case of someone having unduly secured the loan and when we found out we initiated steps for him to be contacted for refund. There is no evidence of the bad press they want to embark on” Mr. Opoku in an interview with OFFINSO WATCH editor Osei Kuffour on Thursday morning.
There were rumours making rounds on social media implicating the NPP leadership in the constituency but Mr. Opoku has dared anyone to come out with incontrovertible evidence to that effect.
