NDC delegation visits Selormey at Nsawam Prisons

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) on Saturday sent a delegation to visit Victor Selormey, the jailed former Deputy Minister of Finance, at the Nsawam Prisons.

A statement issued in Accra said the delegation went to express the party's solidarity and wish him Merry Christmas. The delegation also took the opportunity to visit Mallam Yussif Issa, former Youth and Sport Minister who is also serving a four-year term for the loss of money meant as per diem for the Black Stars.

It said Selormey and Mallam Issa were "quite hearty and appeared sound in health. "Selormey was jailed by an Accra Fast Track Court for causing the loss of more than 1.2 million dollars to the state in the court computerisation project.

The NDC delegation presented items including rice, cooking oil, fruits and bread worth about 600,000 cedis to the inmates for the Christmas.

The delegation, led by Mr Huudu Yahaya, General Secretary of the NDC, included Mr Ekwow Spio-Garbrah, Mr E.T. Mensah, Nii Adjei-Boye Sekan, Mr Bede Ziedeng, Mr Kofi Attor and Mr Victor Smith.

The party also wished its members and Ghanaians a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
