The Member of Parliament for Bolgatanga Central, Isaac Adongo says the Minister for Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta was untruthful with the information he shared with Parliament on Wednesday while accounting for the country’s COVID-19 expenses.
Speaking on Eyewitness News, the legislator said there is the need for further probe to ascertain the actual amount accrued to the government and its expenditure.
“I just don’t know how this man [Ken Ofori-Atta] thought that he will just come and bamboozle [us] and get away with it. No wonder he has been running away from accountability and from Parliament all this while. People who contested elections openly claimed that they were given allocations of COVID money to spend, yet most of these monies did not even come as free money. People cannot hide behind COVID to plunder the public purse. They must account for it and the more open that process is, the better it is in claiming back the credibility of Parliament and the government architecture we set for ourselves,” he said.
