President Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo, in an address, disclosed that his government has spent some GHc 450 Million to solve the drainage problems in the country. Reacting to this, a famous Joy News journalist, Kojo Yankson, has done a proper analysis based on the recent Auditor General’s report to explain why some officials must be arrested immediately.
“In spending that amount of money, there was no master plan They just constructed some drains without recourse to any plan. Then they also did not budget enough for the work. Even with the little that they budgeted, the Finance Minister did not release that money on time. Some of the projects ended up being ineffective and unpracticable.
“Defects were also found in 55 percent of the work done. We spent GHc 450 million on this. Is this not the kind of thing that would lead to talks about jails in other parts of the world? Must someone not be facing jail?”
