Okudzeto Ablakwa Exposes Akuffo Addo and Finance Minister on Akosombo Dam spillage Amid Ecowas supported Affected Communities

Why has the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government concealed from Parliament and the Ghanaian people that they had additionally applied to ECOWAS for financial support for the Akosombo dam spillage flood victims?

Intercepted documents from the ECOWAS Commission show that ECOWAS has approved US$200,000.00 (GHS2.4million) following Ghana’s application.

When Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta presented the 2024 Budget on November 15, 2023 — he only disclosed government’s applications to the World Bank and the Global Shield Against Climate Risk Fund. (Reference: paragraphs 29 and 30 at page 5 of 2024 Budget).

This is despite having applied to the ECOWAS Commission some two weeks prior to the budget presentation in Parliament as the intercepted documents from ECOWAS reveal.

The NDC Caucus in Parliament shall be promptly demanding full disclosure and total accountability on all government requests for funding submitted to international organizations and how these funds are being utilized.
