FAKE STORY ABOUT CR NDC IN CIRCULATION
Our attention has been drawn to a criminally motivated untruth in circulation on social media. The general public, members of the Central Region NDC and all media practitioners are entreated to take note.http://ghanapoliticsonline.com
Myjoyonline.com published a story concerning the Northern Regional Chairman of the npp and his executives over some corrupt practices.
However, some unscrupulous and faceless individuals decided to edit that story from myjoyonline.com and attributed it to starfmonline.com but starfmonline.com does not that fake story on their site too.
Below is the fake story:
…”Blows at NDC regional party of over corruptionhttp://ghanapoliticsonline.com

The Regional central Chairman of the ruling (NDC), Bernard Allotey Jacobs, is under pressure to cough out Ghc5millon he has allegedly diverted for his personal benefit.
The party’s central Regional Secretariat revealed that the money was released for party activities in the central region
The outspoken regional Chairman who has been accused of running a one-man administration in his residence in cape coasthttp://ghanapoliticsonline.com
A crunch meeting organized to discuss the matter and retrieve the cash, was inconclusive because Bernard Allotey Jacobs threatened to suspend whoever challenged his leadership style.
According to one of the concerned regional executives, Bernard Allotey Jacobs at the said meeting claimed the money was meant for him as a thank you for his role in rigging the 2012 in central region
His explanation was contrary to what the party’s national secretariat explained to some of the agitated regional executives.
Some NDC members condemned Bernard Allotey Jacobs action and called for a refund of the Ghc5million cedis. Or else they would come out with secret”…
Leadership of Central Region NDC by this release is pointing out the mischief to the good people of Ghana. The criminals only edited the name of Bugri Naabu and substituted it with Chairman Allotey Jacobs, substituted NDC with npp and removed Northern Region and substituted it with Central Region.
Central Regional NDC is well organised and focus in delivering the Region for His Excellency John Dramani Mahama and will not be distracted by these infantile tantrums that we believe were sponsored by unprincipled opposition politicians who have been caught in their corrupt deals. Chairman Allotey Jacobs does not even handle funds in our administration. All funds are given to the Regional Treasurer as our Constitution dictates. In fact, he even opted out as a signatory to all our party accounts so the NPP can learn from him.
