The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has accused the head of the Metro Mass Transit System of attempting to sabotage its inter-denominational church service scheduled for the Western region on Sunday by refusing to allow the opposition party use its buses they have already paid for.

According to the NPP, the acting managing director of the Metro Mass Transit Services, Maxwell Awuku, has ordered the Western Regional director of the company to refund monies paid for the buses to the party with no apparent reasons.

The main opposition party of Ghana on Thursday launched its inter-denominational church service which begins on Sunday, January 29 at 2pm at the Essipong Stadium in the Western region.

The essence of the service is to commit the party’s presidential candidate, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, all the parliamentary candidates, the party and the nation at large in the care of the Lord as the December elections fast approaches.

In order to get people to the Essipong stadium, the NPP said it paid in full a number of MMTS buses to transport party loyalists and supporters to the venue.

Speaking on Citi FM’s Saturday talk show the ‘Big Issue’, the deputy Communications Director of the NPP, Perry Okudzeto stated that upon going to the premises of the Metro Mass in the Western region for confirmation for the usage of the buses, the offices of the Metro Mass were locked before their normal closing time.

He added that information picked up from the Accra head office of the MMTS indicated that Mr Awuku ordered the Takoradi branch of the inter-city transport service to lock up the offices and refund their monies.

Meanwhile, Mr Awuku has denied sabotaging the NPP’s church service by ordering a refund of their monies paid for the usage of the buses.

He said he has no interest in the NPP praying to God and would achieve nothing by sabotaging their programme.

According to him, the NPP have not paid any money for the buses and rather negotiated for the buses to be used on credit, which he refused.

Mr. Awuku also remarked that it is surprising that the NPP has realised the importance of prayers after on several occasions castigating President Mills for turning the seat of government, the Osu Castle into a prayer camp.
