Members of the Ghana Cooperative Susu Collectors Association (GCSCA) have asked its President, Mr. Aboagye Manu, to step aside from the operations of the Association, because of his alleged involvement in a fake currency deal, which is pending before the court.
Mr. Aboagye was arrested by the Brong Ahafo Police Command at Brekum, during one of his rounds in the region. Upon hearing the news reported by Peace FM and the Daily Graphic on the 3rd and 6th October respectively, members of the association were summoned for an emergency Board of Directors meeting, to take appropriate measures to that effect.
Addressing a group of journalists in Accra on Wednesday, Nana Aboa Ofei Akoto, General Secretary of the GCSCA, indicated that the President's action was a personal issue, and should not be directed to members of the association.
He said Susu collection, which image was sinking some time ago, had now seen its glory, but it was unfortunate for the association to receive the news of a prominent member being involved in such an act.
The General Secretary pointed out that in order to build trust in its members, the management of the GCSCA would do all it could, to expose any person found indulging in such acts.
According to him, maintaining the good name of the association was very necessary, and therefore prompted the Board of Directors to take a final decision on Mr. Aboagye's role in the association, after the outcome of the court ruling.
Nana Akoto, responding to questions from the press, noted that the publication by Peace FM and the Daily Graphic, had invoked some anger in some customers, who demanded their monies back.
