Mr Harry Anthony Attipoe, Registrar of the Volta Regional House of Chiefs has reacted to a story circulating on the social media that, he has vanished into thin air with two vehicles donated by the Vice President of the Republic of Ghana Dr Alhaji Mahamadu Bawumia to the Oti Regional House of chiefs.
The Registrar said the story was fabricated to tarnished his integrity, he urges the general public to ignore.
Mr Attipoe said, he was invited by the Ministry of Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs to come for the vehicles which were meant for the Oti Regional House of chiefs.
According to Mr Attipoe, the vehicles were in his custody for two weeks before the inauguration of the Oti Regional House of chiefs.
“Four days before the inaugural he sends one of the vehicle’s which was the Landcruiser to the Oti Regional Minister, Hon Kwesi Owusu Yeboah at Dambai the Capital of Oti. And the vehicle was kept in the Regional Minister resident for safety reasons but the keys were with him”.
Mr Attipoe continues that on the day before the inaugural he added the second vehicle to the Landcruiser. After the event, the Vice President Dr Mahamadu Bawumia handled the keys of the two vehicles to him.
The registrar desired to keep the two vehicles with him and would send them back on the 12th of October when the election would be conducted to elect the leaderships of Oti Regional House of chiefs. Because the Landcruiser was to be used by the president of Oti Regional House of Chiefs and the pick up for administration purpose.
He also said he wasn’t instructed us where to send the vehicles were to be kept. The Registrar continues that to his surprise on his way from Dambai to Accra. The driver of the pick-up vehicles called him that he has been stopped by some policemen that the Oti Regional Minister has ordered them to come for the vehicles.
He spoke with the Policemen and asked the driver to release the vehicle to them, he also asked them to come for the Landcruiser by then he has gotten to Nkwanta. Few minutes after the Divisional Commander of Nkwanta, Superintendent of police by the name Lartey Lawson comes that he has been instructed by the Oti Regional Minister that he should come for the Landcruiser.
He took his particulars made him sign after he gave the vehicle to him. He again said the publication which was on social media that he has vanished into thin air with the vehicles donated by the Vice President doesn’t make sense to him because those vehicles were kept in his custody for two weeks before the inaugural.
