The Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has said former President John Mahama only lessons he has learnt after losing the 2016 elections is “new stealing skills” for Ghana’s public purse.
According to him,the NDC is bent on stealing from the public purse if they are voted into power in 2020.
The controversial law maker says the NDC flagbearer has not learnt any useful lessons.
“It is now that he [Mahama] has gone to learn better ways of stealing big… It is stealing sense he has gone to learn and he is coming back.”
He explained that because NDC said “we don’t have enough electricity so you go and they signed 17 Power Purchase Agreements. It is between 7 and 11 cents per kilowatt per hour. The NDC people who went to bring it and fix it at 16 – 17 cents per kilowatt per hour. They signed bogus agreements called take or pay… because of that every year electricity that we produce that we don’t need is 1 billion dollars.” He said.
“I am telling you again he learnt new stealing skills. Akufo-Addo went to Equatorial Guinea to renegotiate Mahama’s deal there. He saved us 1billion dollars.” He added.
The Assin Central Member of Parliament lauded the government for not paying for some power contracts as the money will end in NDC pockets.
“The NDC has made money and we are also giving them contract. They made money. When they steal it is paid to the outside and they don’t even bring it here. It is good we are not paying some of the contractors because the money will go to NDC and they will come and use the money to fight us. It is something I will commend Ofori Atta on.
