There is confusion at the Eastern Regional branch of Progressive Transport Owners Association (PROTOA) after a vote of No Confidence was passed on the Regional Chairman, Yaw Adongo.
Out of the 36 members, 28 voted against him.
The embattled Chairman has been accused by the members of the private commercial drivers union – PROTOA, in Koforidua over alleged intimidation, frightening members with Juju, and failure to render account having chaired the Union for twenty-One years.
Addressing the media and a section of Security personnel in Koforidua, the convener, Joshua Kofisiga, said with the passing of the vote of No Confidence, an interim executive will be put in place to organize an election to elect new executives to steer the affairs.
“He fights against everybody, suspends members unreasonably, sacking them. He has ruled the Association for 21 years. Anytime there is an election he threatens the members if you come to contest me I will kill with Juju. He has been slapping drivers, insulting them, force them to kneel down.”
“We were supposed to have our election in December but the chairman deliberately failed to ensure it was held. Now we are going to form another team to lead the association until the general elections”.
Meanwhile the embattled Chairman, Yaw Adongo has described as blatant falsehood allegations levelled against him stating he is still the Chairman of the union.
There is anxiety over a possible clash between the embattled Chairman and the aggrieved drivers. – Kojo Ansah
