New Patriotic Party (NPP) Stalwart, Prof.Baah Acheamfour has lamented that some NPP parliamentary canddiates are taking advantage of women in their constituencies by exploiting them of their monies. He added that these actions are intolerable and defames the party.
The NPP stalwart accused aspiring parliamentary candidate of the NPP in the Tolon Constituency, Alhaji Habib Iddrisu, of engaging in such an act.
In an interview with Kwame Afrifa Mensah on the ‘Epa Hoa Daben’ show, he alleged that the parliamentary aspirant had deliberately refused to pay a loan he took from a noble woman in his constituency and has thus subjected the woman to pain and worry.
“Habib Iddrisu requested a loan of GH₵600,000.00 to invest in a buffer stock. The woman agreed to help him based on the documents he presented and also on the agreement that she will receive a part of the profit. Habib Iddrisu made money out of his buffer stock but never paid the woman in three years. The woman was able to get part of her money because the CEO of the buffer stock fell pity for her and provided her with some money”, he narrated.
According to him, such an action is intolerable because women are the weaker group in the society and as such men need to show their support.
When quizzed by Kwame Afrifa Mensah if he, Prof.Baah Acheamfour had confronted Habib Iddrisu on the issue, he responded, “When I called him, he told me that he was very busy because of the elections”.
Alhaji Iddrisu Habib will be contesting the NPP parliamentary election in the Tolon constituency of the Northern Region scheduled for 20th June,2020.
