A full-blown investigation is set to begin into circumstances under which some 400 tricycles were allegedly stolen at the premises of the Northern Development Authority (NDA).
The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service said in a statement that some persons of interest would be invited for questioning over the matter.
This comes after a letter filed by the then Acting Chief Executive Officer of the NDA, Dr. A. M. Haroun detailing how the items were stolen
This development also comes months after the government terminated the appointment of Dr. Alhaji Abdel-Majeed Haroun.
The letter, signed by President Nana Akufo-Addo’s Executive Secretary, Nana Bediatuo Asante, gave no reason for the revocation of the appointment of Dr. Haroun.
It might, however, be linked to the missing vehicles, sources at the Presidency tell Dailymailgh.
The ruling New Patriotic Party created the Northern Development Authority, together with the Middle Belt and Coastal Development Authorities, and tasked them to implement the Infrastructure for the Poverty Eradication Programme (IPEP).
Northern Development Authority (NDA) was established by the Northern Development Authority Act, 2017, Act 963 to “provide a framework for the accelerated economic and social development of the Northern Development Zone”.
