It appears District Assemblies Common Fund (DACF) Administrator, Irene Naa Torshie Addo, is on a “desperate spending spree" to court the support of party members to advance her running mate ambition - some New Patriotic Party (NPP) members claim.

Her activities have drawn the anger of many party members who have called on the party leadership to take immediate action on the matter in order not to jeopardise the ‘breaking the 8’ agenda.

Office influence

According to the party members she has allegedly been using her office to influence party members to back her move.

“What she is doing will come back to hurt the party very soon," a concerned party member in the Ashanti Region remarked.

Deployment of ‘her boy’ 

A major strategy she has adopted is deploying her 'boy’ Augustine Collins Ntim, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Offinso North, to go round to sell her to party members.

Last Sunday, Ntim who is a former Deputy Minister of Local Government, Decentralisation and Rural Development, managed to attend a meeting of constituency secretaries of the NPP in the Ashanti Region in Kumasi where he dwelt his speech on Naa Torshie much to the surprise of the gathering.

Ntim who lost his parliamentary primary, and was also sacked from his deputy ministerial position by President Akufo-Addo, has virtually become redundant and is now doing the work of her ‘boss’ Naa Torshie.

Action 

Party members including metropolitan, municipal and district chief executives (MMDCEs) who spoke on the matter say they suspect wrongdoing and called on President Akufo-Addo to investigate how the Common Fund is being applied.
