The Obuasi Municipal Assembly has refused to accept 15,949 Ghana@50 souvenir cups delivered by Able Import and Export which is based in Teshie/Nungua in Accra.

Disclosing the information at a press conference Tuesday, the Obuasi Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Mr John Alexander Ackon, explained that on Friday, October 16, 2009, the driver of a cargo vehicle, with registration number GT 6104 B, reported at his office with a letter and a waybill from Able Import and Export of Teshie/Nungua, Accra, to deliver Ghana@50 souvenir cups to the assembly.

He stressed that the assembly refused to take the items owing to the ongoing probe into the Ghana@50 celebrations and recent developments but emphasised that his outfit was waiting for a directive from the Ministry of Local Government, the Commission of Enquiry into the Ghana@50 celebrations and the Ashanti Regional Co-ordinating Council.

Mr Ackon added that the assembly already had 3,750 of the Ghana@50 souvenir cups in stock which were yet to be distributed and, therefore, the delivery of an additional 15,949 pieces would not be necessary.

He said he could not understand why the cups should be delivered long after the celebration had ended, with no records to that effect.
