Ho, June 13, GNA - Some aggrieved drivers and transport owners of the Ghana Private Roads Transport Union (GPRTU) in the Volta Region have petitioned the Volta Regional Minister to intervene in an impasse between them and their Chairman, Mr Moses Davor.
In a petition signed by Mr Lawrence Attitoe, Convener of the aggrieved members who went on street protest against the Chairman alleged that for 16 years, the Chairman had entrenched himself and his "cronies" in power and “succeeded in over-seeing fraudulent and rigged elections”.
He alleged that over the years, Mr Davor took the transport management committee for granted, dismissing elected officers with impunity.
Mr Attitoe said one was likely to become his target once you disagreed with him in principle, creating chaos and disorderliness in the transport service.
Mr Attitoe appealed to the Regional Security Council (REGSEC) to compel the Economic and Organised Crime Organisation (EOCO) to investigate the source of Mr Davor’s wealth.
He said they were ready to assist in any investigation to bring lasting peace to the Volta regional GPRTU.
Mr Johnson Avuletey, Deputy Volta Regional Minister who received the petition on behalf of the Regional Minister, assured that all parties would be invited to find a lasting resolution to the impasse.
Earlier in the week, Mr Davor had in a letter addressed to the media and Regional Police Command reminded the aggrieved members that their intended demonstration was illegal in line with the Union's constitution.
He said the demonstration was an act to tarnish his image and to prevent him from contesting any position in the GPRTU of TUC in the upcoming general election in August this year.
