Henry Quartey has alleged that the relief items for the flood and fire disaster were being distributed along party lines.
New Patriotic Party Member of Parliament for Ayawaso Central, Henry Quartey, has accused the National Disaster Management Organization of been partisan in distributing relief items to affected victims of the flood and fire disaster in his constituency.
The MP alleged that the items were being distributed along party lines.
Speaking on TV3's New Day programme Thursday, the MP expressed his disgust at the development and said the disaster must be viewed from a national perspective.
"What's happening with the distribution of relief items is that, in my constituency I have had several calls from people telling me that in some of the areas where the distribution is being done, some known NDC people in the area are leading the NADMO officials and wherever they get to, they point individuals who are party members and who are not to receive the items. This is a natural disaster. Relief items are tax payers' money and donations from people so as a matter of urgency they should try not to do politics in the distribution of relief items. That's what happening in my constituency and I can say thus on authority," he said.
