Dafeamakpor Sues Over Unlawful Auction At Kumasi Technical University
The Member of Parliament for South Dayi, Mr Rockson Nelson Dafeamakpor, has sued the state over the public auction of nine unserviceable vehicles belonging to the Kumasi Technical University. Dafeamakpor’s contention is that approval for the action, said to have taken place in the December 2020, was given by the Chief of Staff,
Akosua Frema Osei Opare. He is seeking a declaration that the Chief of Staff has no authority to approve the disposal of the nine vehicles in the possession of the Kumasi Technical University by auction sale. The MP also contends that the manner in which the auction was also done was contrary to the Section 83 of the Public
Procurement Act, 2003 Act 663 and should be declared null and void. As a result, he also wants, from the High Court, a declaration that no valid title has passed to the various purchasers at the auction sale conducted on the 22nd of December 2020 and an order directing the Government of Ghana to reverse the auction sale and
the ownership of the vehicles.According to the suit, the vehicles, were acquired between 2001 and 2013. The Chief of Staff is said to have requested that one William Badu of Jactom Mart auctions the vehicles. The suit indicated that the said vehicles were sold for a total of GHS 55,900.
