A member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Chris Azawodie, has been rendered homeless from his East Legon property in the Greater Accra region.

He was evicted after he allegedly defaulted on paying a $200,000 loan granted to him by former Chief of Staff Kwadwo Mpiani.

According to reports, the wife and children of the NPP stalwart were evicted from their home after a court ordered his two residential properties should be taken over and auctioned.

Chris Azawodie narrating his ordeals to Accra-based Class FM said, he was given a government contract in 2007, his attempt at securing a loan from the National Investments Bank (NIB) to execute the project failed and approached Kwadwo Mpiani and some individuals for the money.

According to him, his business locked up over a year in a warehouse under former President John Agyekum Kufuor.

He said "For a business man to get his goods worth $5.2million locked up for over a year in a warehouse, I don’t think [any] man can sustain that but I give it to God. I petitioned the President and leaders of our party over what I’m going through. Through the chairman, I hope very soon I’ll hear from the party leadership and government."

He noted that he'll petition Kufuor under whose tenure his goods were locked up.

"I’ll personally call on President Kufuor because it was his term that this thing happened but probably I know he’s not aware of it but his late Vice President is aware of all that I went through but all the same the police must do their work. Whether my house has been auctioned or not, whether others have walked into my house to forcibly eject me or not, the police must come out with the result," he added.

Meanwhile, some executives of the party over the weekend commiserated with Chris Azawodie over the loss.

Acting National Chairman of the NPP, Freddie Blay, expressed the party’s heartfelt sympathies to the businessman and assured him of their support.

"Unfortunate through some misfortune and so forth, he’s out of his house. His wife and his children so I came to visit him… We are here to say hello to some of our party members and to wish them well and to fraternise with him. There are ups and downs in life. It’s a lesson we are all going through. You have our solidarity…this is just a phase we are going through, sooner than later, this will pass," Freddie Blay said.
