The Ashanti Regional Chairman, Mr. Bernard Antwi-Boasiako, is calling on former President John Mahama to account to Ghanaians about scandals that rocked his government if he has now found a voice to speak.
Mr. Antwi-Boasiako aka Chairman Wontumi believes Ghana is at a crossroads because the erstwhile government headed by Mr. Mahama couldn’t account for funds that were “greedily pumped into projects such as GYEEDA, SADA, Hope City” and others.
In an interview, the NPP Chairman explained that for Mr. Mahama to “have the balls” to shove lies on President Akufo-Addo’s government by falsely claiming that it is blaming every fall on COVID-19, is very “disgusting to think about”.
Speaking at an event organised by the opposition National Democratic Congress dubbed ‘Ghana at a crossroads’, Mr. Mahama claimed that “Being a pandemic, COVID-19 affected almost every country on earth including our West African neighbours with who we share similar economic characteristics.”
“Yet, these neighboring countries such as Cote d’Ivoire, Togo, Benin, Guinea, Nigeria, Liberia, Senegal, and Sierra Leone, have emerged from this pandemic comparatively unscathed and with relatively stronger fundamentals as compared to ours.”
But Chairman Wontumi called Mr. Mahama out for telling lies- noting that he wants insulate himself from the “bad scandals that rocked his government”.
“Can he now tell us the full story about GYEEDA, SADA and Hope City project?” he asked.
