Akufo-Addo causing financial loss to the state - Ablakwa
National Democratic Congress (NDC) lawmaker for North Tongu and minority spokesperson on Foreign Affairs, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa is unhappy about the utilization of the country’s scarce resources under President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
The young politician therefore expressed worry that the country and taxpayers are now going to spend more to pay for two former governors and two former deputy governors who resigned even before their time was due.
He questioned government why the Governors and Deputy Governors who resigned decide to succumb to pressures rather than stand up to principle and test the law.
“If Ghana was your company will you run it that way?, Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa on Joy FM’s news analysis programme Newsfile on Saturday quizzed President Akufo-Addo.
“It appears to me that, well they don’t mind, okay government is powerful, let me just take my entitlements and that’s it”
“That is the problem I have, financial loss to the state and waste of resources, we don’t need that,” the former Deputy Minister of Education revealed during a panel discussion.
According Victor Adawudu, one of the lawyers the resigned 2nd Deputy Governors of Bank of Ghana, Mr. Johnson Asiama some persons at the BoG made their client’s stay in office difficult and it was, therefore, reasonable for him to resign in the interest of his family and country.
The lawmaker therefore admonished the governors who feel unfairly treated should go to court and challenge the decision.
