Flag bearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (N.D.C) John Mahama has a strong believe the conduct of the Akufo-Addo administration has left Ghanaians numb to corruption.
Speaking to Kwasi Pratt on Pan African TV on Saturday morning 28th November, Mr. Mahama lamented on what he described as the Akufo-Addo administration’s mismanagement of the energy sector through corruption, among others.
He maintains that the defunct Power Distribution Services was a “strange creature” and an avenue for corruption that should have led to more outrage.
The agreement between the government and PDS was terminated due to what was termed fundamental and material breaches.
PDS was, in July 2019, found to have presented invalid insurance security for the takeover of ECG assets.
“We are too shocked by the corruption of the Akufo-Addo administration that nothing shocks us any more so now when huge amounts of corruption happen, people don’t have the energy to talk about it again,” Mr.
“PDS has taken some the Electricity Company’s revenues, more than GHS200 million, and put int in the commercial bank here and that money is earning interest and we need to ask then who the interest is going to.”
According to the opposition party, the government’s decision to terminate the fraudulent contract with PDS has led to a huge loss of state funds that must be properly accounted for.
