A-Plus Reveals Reason Why Ghana Is Lagging Behind; Exposes One Agency Spending Gh100k On Food
It has become a norm in the country where political leaders inflate figures and embezzle funds when assigned to undertake a project or programme.
Musician and New Patriotic Party (NPP) sympathizer, Kwame A-Plus, has shared some official documents of how some agencies in the country spent a lot of money on food and drinks and auditing services.
A-plus, however, took to his official Facebook page to have his bite on the documents requesting for funds to be released to cater for the services that have been provided.
One of his posts read, “In Ghana when you tell people in power that their cup is dirty, instead of washing their dirty cup they go about looking for your dirty spoon. I asked how come we spent over 33 million cedis of poor pensioner’s money on auditing when we have an audit service, a government agency mandated by law to audit even the bank of Ghana?
Then you start by calling me ignorant in your release but admit in the same release that it was a mistake. If it was a mistake can’t you simply state that it was a mistake, apologize and correct it? And what are you telling us?
That the figure was uploaded to your website by SNNIT? PPA does not have an IT department that verifies figures before uploading it on your website?…”
Yet in another post of gross spending, A-Plus revealed how an amount of GHC 135,125.00 was used to organize a Christmas party on December 22, 2017. The said amount was cost covering food, drinks, and music provided during the party.
“Apart from conflict of interest which is a serious offence let me ask this. How many people ate 135,125.00 Ghana cedis worth of food? Herrrrh they can eat oooo hahahahahaha. And wait, wait, wait.
Extract of his post reads, The second invoice…, how many people ate over 10,000.00 Ghana cedis food at one meeting? Come for your medals. You people can eat for Africa. Waaaawolo. Pick pockets have taken the public purse from Nana Addo’s pocket,”
Later, he released another official document of a bill of over GHC 10,000 fro food served to eight people during management meetings at the Luxe Suites Hotel.
It is yet to be ascertained the number of days it took to finish the said meetings.
“Charley me I still don’t understand how 8 people spent 10,652,00 on food during a meeting. Ah how? It means each person’s food (just one meal) cost 1,335.00 Ghana cedis. Really?
If you own Ghana as your private company will you spend this amount on a meal for just one meeting? If we complained during the campaign that NDC spent 20 dollars on Kenkey in Brazil, how then can we support this? 20 dollars is just 100 Ghana. This is 1.335.00 per person per meal. Did they chew golden sausages or the elephant itself came to the meeting?,” A-Plus wrote.
Kwame A-Plus was a staunch supporter of the NPP but stands against corruption in government and has taken in his all to expose deals which according to him, were not in the interest of the state.
