The special committee set up by the Peoples National Convention (PNC) to investigate the unaccounted for GHC1.3 million cedis campaign funds has on Tuesday begun its work.
The three member committee led by former PNC Member of Parliament for Sisala West, Harunah Bayariga is expected to submit its report in three weeks.
Sources at the PNC headquarters said huge funds meant for the PNC 2012 campaign activities were diverted for personal use.
The Committee Chairman, Hon. Harunah Bayariga toldCiti News all those who handled physical cash during the elections will be summoned.
“For the moment we are taking it as an allegation because we have not established any truth in it but after our findings we will lay bare the truth through the party leadership for any action to be taken if need be.”
Hon. Bayariga said the committee’s approach will be different from that of the Convention Peoples Party (CPP) who named and shamed their 2012 Presidential candidate, Dr. Abu Sakara Foster and some national executives of the party cited in a similar situation.
“Our leader, who founded the PNC, Dr. Limann was corrupt free; it is on record and so we will not let ours come out like that of the CPP; we want to treat it as an internal issue and if we are not able to reach any final agreement with the people involved we will have no option than to let the public know the outcome of our investigations.”
