GHANAIANS HAVE WALKED OUT OF THE MEMORY LOSS
Matin Abdallah (UG-TESCON President) writes…
Without mincing words,let it be told that, contrary to former President Mahama’s earlier pronouncement about Ghanaians suffering from a quick memory loss, we have long walked out of the disease.
Yes, on 7th December 2016, Ghanaians remembered NDC apparatchiks unpardonable incompetence and the gargantuan sleazes and corruption and delivered to them the most humiliating defeat in the history of our nation.
Yes, Ghanaians still have fresh in mind your inept records in government on the front of corruption. We still remember:
• The dubious Embraer 190 aircrafts deal which prompted former President Mills to set up a Committee to investigate the then Vice President Mahama.
• The $250 million bill we incurred on the unsuccessful STS housing deal which was spearheaded by the then Vice President John Dramani Mahama.
• The bizarre GH800 million judgement debt payments over the last seven and half years.
• The undeserving GH51.2 million judgement debt payment (create, loot and share) to Woyome.
• The weird $30 million judgement debt payment to Waterville, which the Supreme Court of Ghana ruled as unconstitutional and ordered the NDC government to retrieve, but to no avail.
• The wrongful $25 million judgement debt payment to ISOFOTON, which the NDC government has failed to retrieve despite the Supreme Court’s order.
• The scandal (create, loot and share) at the National Service Secretariat which cost Ghana millions of Ghana Cedis.
• The SADA scandal which deprived the people of the Northern Region millions of Cedis meant for development.
• The SUBA scandal which cost Ghana millions of Cedis meant for the improvement of the economy.
• The GYEEDA corruption scandal which deprived the youth of Ghana millions of Cedis meant for the creation of jobs.
• The amount of $250 million from the Euro bond which was meant for infrastructural development was lodged surreptitiously in an unauthorised bank account.
• Inflated costs of infrastructural projects (the former Minister for Local Government, Collins Dauda raised concerns).
