Popular Lawyer Boldly Drops Names Of Politicians Supposedly ‘Stealing’ Wealth From State Coffers; The List Shocking -Check List

Controversial Lawyer, Maurice Ampaw says some ‘babies in diapers’ have in a short period become ‘millionaires’ – something they would have struggled to achieve if they did not venture into politics.

According to him, politics in Ghana has become the fastest way for just any ordinary person to become rich. He named the likes of Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Okudzeto Ablakwa, NDC’s Felix Kwakye Ofosu, the National Youth Organiser of the NPP, Henry Nana Boakye, Director General, National Lottery Authority, Sammy Awuku among others who have suddenly become “rich” with their involvement into politics. Lawyer Ampaw argued that the acquisition of wealth among some young politicians in the country is alarming – he, however, called on the office of the Special Prosecutor (SP) to investigate them to save the public purse. “We know them, you don’t need lawyer Ampaw to mention names.

They are overnight achievers; they have not suffered enough.”  “Someone like Okudzeto Ablakwa, Felix Kwakye Ofosu among others have done nothing in life but rich now, we saw the lavish wedding by Okudzeto Ablakwa in this country.

Where did he get the money from as a university graduate with no working experience?” “I have known Okudzeto Ablakwa from years back.

They are a lot them, right from university they entered politics and are rich now,” he said in an interview with NEAT FM’s morning show, ‘Ghana Montie’, Thursday, 19th May 2022. Lawyer Ampaw, who was discussing the Special Prosecutor’s role to protect the public purse told host, Akwasi Aboagye that – “All these boys from Mahama’s time to President Nana Addo’s time must be investigated on how they are making their money.” “There are so many things happening in this country.

Kejetia Market Built By Mahama Is Needless, It’s Causing Traffic In Kumasi – Wontumi Alleges

Since they all turned to the IMF during their terms as president, Ghana’s decision to approach it has sparked a lot of debate regarding who is the best between Mahama and Nana Addo. There have been many things established, and there will be more.

The chairman of Ashanti Regional has been making headlines on the internet with his straightforward and pro-NPP utterances against the NDC, one of which was made at the NPP’s delegate conference last year and drew a lot of attention.

Under Nana Addo’s leadership, he said, Ghana is superior to the United Kingdom, United States of America, and other European nations. He recently made another statement, which I will provide to you in this piece.

President Mahama, according to Chairman Wontumi. He said, “John Mahama’s New Kejetia Market is unnecessary; it is clogging up Kumasi.” Because of his reputation for making things like these, many were alarmed and reacted right afterwards.

Fresh Scandal Uncovered: Over $31M COVID-19 Theft At Ministry Of Communications Finally Exposed?; Details Dropped

Fresh Scandal Uncovered: Over $31M COVID-19 Theft At Ministry Of Communications Finally Exposed?; Details Dropped

The compilation of unassailable documents we are reviewing quite painstakingly confirm that for the 2020 and 2021 fiscal years, the Ghanaian taxpayer was saddled with a colossal US$36,061,637.62.

A breakdown of US$31,596,512.12 in 2020 and US$4,465,125.50 in 2021.

The total sum works out to an impressive GHS290million at current exchange.

The Finance Minister opened up to numerous expenditure items far lower than half of this (an example is the infamous serving of packed food which he claimed cost us GHS54million)

Unauthorized Use of Single Source Procurement Method.

In a 27th January, 2021 letter from the Public Procurement Authority (PPA) signed by the then Acting Chief Executive, Mr. Frank Mante — the PPA described the Minister of Communications and Digitalisation’s 2020 conduct as an ‘unauthorized use of the single source procurement method.’

Ghana’s Public Procurement Act, 2003 (Act 663) as Amended with (Act 914) makes adequate provision for how single-source procurement should be carried out in periods of emergency or during catastrophic events, however, none of those provisions were respected.

2020 Cabinet Approval

It is emerging from a letter dated 1st December, 2020 and signed by Deputy Minister for Finance at the time, Hon. Charles Adu Boahen that Cabinet approved only US$8million for the Smart Workplace Project.

It remains a mystery how the Communications Minister defied this Cabinet decision and proceeded to award a US$31.5million contract.

Company Track Record

Our indisputable findings reveal that Smart Infraco Limited had absolutely no track record before being handed the lucrative, albeit illegal contract.

The company was incorporated as recently as 9th October, 2019 – a few months before signing the Smart Workplace sweetheart deal of March 25, 2020.

Nigerian Connection and Domination of Sector

It is disheartening to observe that despite the many celebrated Ghanaian indigenous IT firms which are globally sought after, Smart Infraco Limited with absolutely no track record that measures up with Ghanaian tech companies is the most preferred by government when its promoters and lead directors are Nigerians.

As a Pan Africanist, I would have had no reservations per se, were they a company with a proven track record and basic respect for our procurement laws.

Interestingly, it’s lead director, Angela Onwuka who signed the notorious March 25, 2020 Agreement, publicly admits she has no IT background. She claims to be a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN).

Her powerful Nigerian backers led by the ever shadowy and elusive Philip Olaiya now dominate and totally control government contracts in the Ghanaian IT ecosystem. They have recently floated another company known as Ascend Digital Solutions Limited which like Smart Infraco is outsmarting the uninitiated and unconnected. With this new vehicle, they are poised for a firmer grip and an even much bigger lion’s share. From the opaque Kelni GVG deal; enhanced e-Government Infrastructure project dated 2nd November, 2020; World Bank US$115million eTransform Ghana Project; to the new Airtel Tigo Ghana Limited and Ascend Digital Solutions JV created to grab the Exim-China/ABSA Bank €164.9million Ghana Rural Telephony and Digital Inclusion Project — a deal we shall discuss in detail another day; the illegal and unpatriotic state capture by abominable proportions ought to be condemned and dismantled.

Final Observations

How many other dubious COVID-19 expenditure items did the Finance Minister conceal from Parliament and the Ghanaian people?

What is the true total COVID-19 expenditure?

When will Government sanction and prosecute its own officials violating our procurement laws with utter impunity?

Parliament’s special joint committee of Finance and Health about to forensically probe COVID-19 expenditure has the most crucial mandate in Ghana’s entire parliamentary history.

For a government that has initiated prosecution on procurement charges leading to people languishing in jail; a government still prosecuting political opponents for alleged procurement breaches; an Akufo-Addo presidency happy to serve as a willing conveyor belt leading to the removal of an Electoral Commissioner who declared him winner of the 2016 elections — the current developments and countless cases of procurement infractions all make for a fascinating future ahead of us.”

It will be recalled that the speaker of parliament agreed to a call by minority to probe all Covid 19 expenditure. He directed the committees on finance and health to carry out the exercise and report back to parliament in October this year.
