The anomalies in the government’ s accounting of COVID- 19 expenditure, according to Sammy Gyamfi, national communications officer for the opposition National Democratic Congress, are an open act of theft.
Ken Ofori- Atta, minister of finance, revealed to the legislature the administration’ s expenses since the COVID- 19 outbreak in 2020. Sammy Gyamfi, however, said that the government had been severely exposed in what he called a massive attempt to steal public funds under the guise of COVID- 19 expenditures while speaking on Metro TV’ s Good Morning Ghana show a day after the minister’ s address. To support his claim, he referred to the discrepancy between earlier government data and the figures the finance minister released.
” I’ m devastated to my core. Because of the wickedness of the individuals in charge of our country’ s affairs at the moment, I am really depressed and want to cry for this country. The theft of public property has reached an absurd level. ” Ken Ofori- Atta, President Akufo- Addo, and Alhaji Bawumia have filled their cups. They are making a fool of themselves in this way because God is exposing them.
The document that was yesterday submitted to the august house of parliament is a muddle. This is dishonest theft. Because the numbers don’ t add up, the numbers are fabricated to commit theft, he claimed.
Some opponents have drawn attention to the discrepancy between the figure and other figures provided by the government during that time, though. For instance, Mr. Ken Ofori-Atta informed the legistlature in 2021 that GHC22 billion had been spent on the COVID-19 campaign.
However, president Akufo-Addo stated GHC17 billion in a speech to the legistlature in March 2022.
Sammy Gyamfi claims that among other things, these three separate figures starkly demonstrate the government’s attempt to plunder state resources.
The NDC National Communications Officer described the discrepancies between state receipts, particularly COVID-19 donor payments, and real government expenditures.
