The former ruling Alliance for Patriotic, Reorientation and Construction (APRC) party has not been paying any rent for occupying the complex that it used as a bureau in Kanifing.
to a press release from the Assets Management and Recovery Corporation (AMRC),
the property occupied by the APRC as its Kanifing political bureau “was neither
sold nor let to the APRC political party”.
Party was also not paying any rent for occupying the said property since 2012,”
the AMRC stated in the statement.
efforts were employed by the Management to ensure that the APRC Political Party
regularises it status on same, but to no avail.”
statement has it that the legal department of AMRC has been instructed to
recover the unpaid accrued rent from 2012 to date in pursuance of the powers
vested in the Corporation by the AMRC ACT.
AMRC statement is in reaction to “the spurious allegation” made by one of the
APRC senior executive members to the press that the political party’s
occupation of the bureau was legal, and that they were paying rent to the AMRC
as the government’s assets manager.
