You Have Money For ‘Useless’ Things But Not To Complete E-Blocks – Ablakwa Fumes At Gov’t



Lawmaker for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has taken the government on for stalling on the completion of some 27 E-blocks.

He wondered how the government is able to find the money for “all kinds of useless” things but says it is unable to raise money to finish some 27 of the E-blocks it inherited from the Mahama administration.

Speaking on Classfm he said “you’re seeing a government that has totally misplaced its priority, does not care about what will move this country forward; it is only interested in their own creature comforts. It is such an embarrassment”.

“This is a national disgrace and we must not accept this and we are waiting for the minister [of education] to come to parliament and see our approval for this decision and he will certainly be met with the kind of resistance that the people of this country expect from parliament”, he said.

“This is a government that finds money for all kinds of useless endeavours, all kinds of extravagance, all kinds of ostentation”, he fumed.

“Look at the size of this government. Look at the size of presidential delegations. Look at the length of convoys – the number of new vehicles that they buy, a presidential convoy of 60 70, 80 vehicles – I mean, these are the things that we should cut down on so that we can redirect those resources into completing schools, completing hospitals”, he suggested.

“So, I am totally outraged at this decision; this is very disappointing”, he added.
