The Ashanti Regional Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Samuel Pyne and Communications Director of the party Kwasi Kyei have finally be given government appointment to serve on the board of Kumasi Abattoir which falls under SSNIT.
The two were recognized after the party’s foot soldiers, and serial callers started questioning the basis for their neglect by the government appointing authority after 2016 elections victory.
Checks from the regional office of the party say, the two, received their formal appointments through Dr. Kwame Addo Kuffour, Board Chairman of Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) about three months ago.
A source in the regional office of the party told Ultimate Fm’s Isaac Justice Bediako that, Sam Pyne in particular was disappointed in the appointment but couldn’t reject it because of the respect he has for the former defence minister Dr. Addo Kuffour when he broke the news to him.
“Isaac, I can tell you that Sam is not happy with this abattoir board member appointment, he accepted it because of the respect he has for his Boss, Dr Addo Kuffour’’ he said.
He added, “You know the contribution of Sam in NPP’s election 2016 victory right, yet his loyalty and hard work has not been recognized by the appointing authority. This appointment according Dr. Kwame Addo Kuffour is just to keep him active, can you imagine that’’ he asked.
Ultimate Fm’s further checks revealed that, the two board member of the Kumasi Abattoir are entitled to 200 Ghana Cedis allowance per each sitting.
Again they are also entitled to a weekly package of meat from the Kumasi Abattoir.
