Earlier this week, there was a media reportage that some minority MPs are owing the Metro Mass Transit Limited to the tune of 1.5 million Ghana Cedis.

The debts per the reportage were in relation to debts accruing from the hiring of buses somewhere in 2016.

The MPs include Honourables Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, A. B. A. Fuseini, Mahama Ayariga, Amidu Suleman, Alhaji Tanko, Cletus Avoka and Ras Mubarak.

But one of the accused MPs, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has rubbished the allegations and denied owing the MMT a pesewa.

According to him, he has paid all debts owed the MMT in full and so he is surprised some faceless individuals are peddling falsehood about him.

“To the best of my knowledge, I have redeemed all obligations to the Metro Mass Transit Ltd.

“At my request, soon after the 2016 election, I demanded to know the entire amount owed for transport services rendered to my beloved constituents during the electioneering period and for which I promptly paid in full as far back as 28th June, 2017.

“See attached evidence of payment with official receipt number: 0190199 as signed by Diana Delali, the Metro Mass Transit Receiving Cashier.

“Having taken notice of the well coordinated smear campaign, I have accordingly instructed my lawyers to formally write to the Metro Mass Transit Ltd as we consider other legal options available to us.

“I am grateful to you all for your concern and support.”
