The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Ghana National Association of Garages has resolved and directed Mr Kwamina Kwadzie to step aside as Chairman of the Western Regional branch of the Association with effect May 4,202q to pave way for general elections to be held in the Region.
REASONS FOR THE DECISION:
1. A Case pending at the Sekondi High Court where some members from Tanokrom Kokompe are accusing Mr Kwadzie of mismanagement of a parcel of land belonging to the Association at Kansaworodo, where it came to light that the Western Development Consortium Limited paid the Western Regional Branch of the Ghana National Association of Garages and Peekob Company Limited various sums of monies to the tune Four Hundred and Fifty Thousand United States Dollars(US$450,000.00) which amount includes that for the resettlement and relocation of Association members at Kansaworodo, which has not been accounted for by Mr Kwadzie.
2. Payment of the sum of Five Hundred Thousand Ghana Cedis(Ghc500,000.00) from the Western Development Consortium Limited to the Western Regional Branch of the Ghana National Association of Garages as per a photocopy of Standard Chartered Bank Limited cheque in our custody, which has not been accounted for by Mr Kwadzie.
3. Deliberate refusal to comply with a letter dated December 14, 2020, from the National Headquarters of the Association, drawing up a time table directing all regional executives in the country to hold elections, leading to the National elections to be held in June 2021.
4. Deliberately organising some members to disrupt the maiden meeting held on April 22, 2021, by the Western Region Election Committee, which was constituted by the National Executive Committee(NEC) to plan for the holding of elections in the Western Regional branch of the Association.
The deliberate postures of Mr Jonathan Kwadzie as stated in reasons(3)and(4) above, show clearly his intentions to block the holding of elections in the Western Region, Considering the pending court case, the National Executive Committee has thought it wise to ask Mr Jonathan Kwadzie to step aside, since he cannot still be office whilst fighting the case at court.
In the light of the above, Mr Kwadzie is prohibited from holding himself as the Regional Chairman of the Ghana National Association of Garages in the Western Region for now. He is prohibited from interfering in all activities of the Regional Election Committee. Mr Jonathan Kwamina Kwadzie is also prohibited from allocating plots of land to members at Kansaworodo with immediate effect.
