Eastern Regional PROTOA Chairman Kicked Out

Eastern Regional Chairman for the Progressive Transport Owners Association (PROTOA), Yaw Adongo has been booted out after a Vote of No Confidence was passed against him.

Out of the 36 members, 28 voted against him.

Addressing the media and a section of Security personnel in Koforidua, the convener, Joshua Kofisiga, said an interim executive will be put in place to organize an election to elect new executives to steer the affairs.

Mr. Yaw Adongo, has been accused over alleged intimidation, frightening members with Juju, and failure to render account having chaired the Union for twenty-One years.

Mr Kofisiga noted that an election was supposed to have been held last year but Mr. Yaw Adongo deliberately brushed it under the carpet. “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.”

He continued, “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”.
