Mahama calls for probe into COVID-19 funds

He said the funds were used to finance NPP 2020 campaign

Mahama spoke at the 4th Summit of the NDC Professional Forum

Former President John Dramani Mahama is calling for an independent forensic audit into how the COVID-19 funds were used.

Speaking at the 4th Summit of the NDC Professional Forum in the Ashanti Region, Mahama said, the funds received by the Akufo-Addo-led government were not used prudently to fight the pandemic.

He said, he stands by his claim that the government misused the COVID-19 funds to finance the New Patriotic Party’s election 2020 campaign.

Parliament presented a motion to ask for a parliamentary investigation into how the COVID-19 funds were used. Who were those who threw out that motion? It was the NPP administration. The only way you can prove me wrong and say that that money was not used for election 2020 is to allow for an independent forensic audit into how the money we received during the COVID pandemic was used. Prove me wrong,” Mahama threw the challenge.

Jonh Dramani Mahama further accused President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo's government of abandoning the constitutional review process started by his government despite the importance of the exercise.

He said, “It is regrettable that, as with almost everything else, this government has abandoned that work we did with regard to the constitutional review process and has failed to move the process forward. [If we win power] We in the NDC will continue and finish the process to ensure that the 1992 constitution evolves into an even stronger document embodying the hopes and aspirations of the ordinary people of Ghana.”
