The Central Regional Chairman of the Ghana Private Road Transport Union(GPRTU) Alhaji Rahyino Shaibu Artey has officially resigned as the regional chairman of GPRTU and has now joined the International Drivers Road Transport Union following misunderstanding that ensued between him and the National Executives.
If we could remember, the Cape Coast High Court 3, presided over by Justice Kwasi Boakyem squashed all 14 allegations including financial malfeasance, autocracy and dictatorship levelled against the Central Regional Chairman of the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) by its national executives.
The executives, who interdicted Alhaji Rahyino Shaibu Artey, were directed by the court to reinstate him.
Alhaji Rahyino Shaibu Artey was interdicted by the National Investigative Committee of the GPRTU, following allegations of financial malfeasance, autocracy and dictatorship.
The management in a letter explained that the decision was taken after preliminary investigations conducted into the allegations established prima facie evidence against the Central Regional Chairman.
The National Executives then send the case to appeals court to temper the reinstatement. The case has then been on and off and this triggered Alhaji Artey to resign from the union because he thinks he has not been treated fare.
Speaking Obaatanpa News Nana Yaw , Alhaji Artey noted that, he is innocent of all the allegations and he will sue those behind for defamation. So as of now, Alhaji R.S. Artey is no more a member of GPRTU but a member of International Drivers Road Transport Union.
On his part, the National Chairman of International Drivers Road Transport Union, Mr. Patrick Asiedu assured that, it will be regrettable decision Alhaji and his people has taken because IDRTU stands for the welfare of its members.
