There was a near stampede at the New Juaben South office of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in Koforidua when dozens of traders trooped to the party office to collect the “MP’s loan” application form.
The situation became chaotic as the traders jolt each other to get access to Member of Parliament for New Juaben South Michael Okyere Baafi’s financial assistance for small-scale enterprises.
