The Volta Regional Minister, Joseph Amenowode, has stated that he does not take



money or kickbacks from contractors... Mr. Amenowode however said that he will not



hesitate to take goats if they bring them to him. “I always reject envelopes from



people but if you bring me a goat, I will accept them, adding, “Will you have



rejected them if you were in my shoes?”
