Okudzeto Ablakwa: Corruption under Akufo-Addo is getting worse by the day

According to him, the level of public corruption is increasing daily under the current administration.

The outspoken NDC MP stated, in response to the most recent Auditor General’s report, that corruption cost the nation GHS17 billion in 2021.

The awful irony is that corruption is now completely out of control even as the Akufo-Addo government begins IMF loan discussions. He tweeted on Friday, July 8 that the most recent 2021 Auditor General report shows that financial irregularities have gotten worse, rising from GHS12.8 billion in 2020 to GHS17.4 billion in 2021.

In addition, he said, “officials have dishonestly managed to create more loopholes by some additional 5 billion cedis in a free-for-all plundering, instead of stopping the massive hemorrhage so we can improve our economic conditions in this period of excruciating cost of living crisis.”

The North Tongu MP recently gave notice that the NDC will seek to recover part of the erroneous payments paid on the contentious national cathedral if it were to win in 2024.

Hon. Ablakwa claimed during a press conference in Parliament that the money the government gave Sir Adjaye for discussions on the National Cathedral was rife with irregularities.

He should be aware that there will be a day of reckoning and that he will eventually have to return all the money he has in his hands. He said, “I mean absolutely ludicrous interpretation and exploitation of the procurement processes because the procurement processes are all fraud.

The congressman also requested comments from Ghanaians on what the project’s host land should be used for if the NDC wins the election.

The MP claims that there are sufficient grounds for impeaching the President based on the project’s dishonesty, procurement violations, opacity, and plain lying.

According to the minority spokesperson on foreign affairs, President Akufo-Addo would not be able to finish the project by the 2024 date he set for himself.

“I anticipate the National Democratic Congress will win the election in 2024, and we’ll want to hear directly from Ghanaians about what they think we should do with the website.

“There has already been a great deal of damage, devastation, and destruction, and a great deal of money has gone into all types of wallets. The project seems to have received some effort. So the question is, what do we do?” he questioned.
