NDC levels alleged corruption scandals against govt

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has listed nine alleged corruption scandals in the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government which needed urgent investigation.

They are the $178 million Kelni GVG and Ministry of Communication corruption scandal, the $1.5 million StarTimes, the $1.2 billion National Identification Authority Scandal, the $2.5 million Ghana Postal Address system scandal.

 

The rest are the five million litres contaminated fuel scandal involving BOST, Movepiina and Zup Oil. the 230 cases of premix fuel diversions by the Ministry of Fisheries, the GH¢800,000.00 website development scandal at the Ministry for Special Development and Initiatives, the $700 million AMERI Novation scandal and the eight million dollars  scandal from Anas’ investigations.

 

Speaking at a press conference to state the party’s position on some national issues yesterday in Accra, Asiedu Nketia, General Secretary of NDC, pointed out that the alleged corruption scandals and maladministration emanated from the NPP government should be investigated thoroughly by the constitutionally mandated state investigation agencies.

 

He added that proper independent reports of their findings should be published and appropriate sanctions applied to those who would be held culpable.

 

“We hereby call on the Akufo-Addo-led administration to render account for the 6.8 million dollars that is supposed to be spent on illegal and ghost audits.

 

“They should justify to Ghanaians why those amounts was paid to a private audit firm to carry out the investigation when state investigating agencies are mandated to do the work.

 

“The amount spent by the government on the investigation can be used to equip state securities who are facing logistics and infrastructural challenges, continuous harassment on former appointees by the government should cease forthwith.

 

“The NDC is a law abiding party, we will not stop our former appointees from cooperating with state investigative authorities, provided they are not fishing expeditions designed to frame them up,” Mr Nketia bemoaned.
