The Macro Small Loans Centre has impounded Eight out of 23 taxi cabs distributed to private business men in Tamale for nonpayment. By extension, the exercise which begun in the nation’s capital Accra has been replicated in Tamale to retrieve the taxi cabs from defaulters.
Alhaji Mohammed Ali, a Kumasi based government functionary who is the Northern Zone Coordinator of MASLOC stormed Tamale with Armed security personnel and carried the exercise.
According to Alhaji Mohammed Ali, some beneficiaries of the taxi cabs failed to honour their part of the contractual relationship in the form of payment within the stipulated period given, hence the need to impound the taxi cabs.
He gave the assurance that the exercise would continue unabated to get all the defaulters to pay in full the amount due for the distributed taxi cabs.
Alhaji Mohammed Ali disclosed that he had the list of all the beneficiaries and that nobody will be left off the hook till the right thing was done.
He therefore advised the beneficiaries to voluntarily own up and cooperate with him or have themselves to blame for any attempt to hide the taxi cabs.
Meanwhile, defaulters whose taxi cabs have so far been impounded in an interview with Citi News asserted that the exercise was politically orchestrated.
