Twenty-three former Agona West Municipal Assembly Members have threatened to take legal action against the assembly for failing to pay them their ex-gratia for more than two years.
The threat was issued at the third ordinary session of the assembly at Agona Swedru.
A spokesman of the members, Mr Jude Baffoe, former Assemblyman for Agona Kwamang and a government appointee of the assembly, said all efforts made to force the assembly to pay the money had proven futile.
He said the ex-members were looking forward to being paid an amount of GH₵ 1,500 each, approved by the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development.
He appealed to Mr Collins Dauda, the Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, to probe the delay of the payment.
Mr Jonathan Benifo, the Acting Co-ordinating Director of the Assembly, responded that the assembly was struggling to mobilise money to pay the ex-members.
