Allow Mahama study GYEEDA report - Gov't

The Government has described as unfortunate calls on the president to publish the investigative report on the financial malfeasance at GYEEDA which was submitted to him some days ago.

Anti-graft institutions and some civil society groups have appealed to President John Mahama to direct the publication of the report in order to instill public confidence in the actions government has promised to take on the report.

But a Deputy Information Minister, Felix Kwakye Ofosu, has described such calls as unfortunate.

Addressing Journalists at the Flagstaff House on Monday, the deputy minister said the president must be allowed enough time to study the report in order to take appropriate actions.


“The president when he received it made a very clear statement that there would be radical changes…so it is only fair that you allow the president time to study the report and take an action”.

“…Therefore it is a bit unfortunate that people are attempting to stampede government into taking action on a report that has been received barely a week ago” Ofosu Kwakye said.

The president is also expected to depart Accra later on Monday for the Republic of Congo, where he is expected to hold a business meeting with President Denis Sassou Nguesso.
