The honourable member of Parliament for North-Tongu constituency, Mr Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has registered his displeasuring stance on Government’s decision to release monies as settlement of judgement debt over attending to the people of North-Tongu who are experiencing tragic moment as a result of the Akosombo Dam spillage.
According to Hon Okudzeto Ablakwa, the government through the ministry of finance have made part payment of judgement debt worth Gh¢230,598,000 million to GPGC limited which he believes is unacceptable taking into consideration the circumstances through which the judgement debt was secured and yet, his beloved constituents have been neglected by the government who claims there’s no money available to take care of the affected people.
“The Akufo-Addo, Dr Bawumia and Hon Kenneth Ofori-Atta government claims it is so broke that they cannot provide emergency housing for the Volta River Authority (VRA) induced flood victims but fresh intercepted documents reveal that they have authorized the release of Gh¢230.5 million (US$20million) to pay for judgement debt they recklessly and wickedly created.” He said.
Hon Okudzeto Ablakwa in the same vein assured Ghanaians, the ministers who played a role for the illegal means of cancelling the contract involving government and GPCG limited would be held accountable by the legal authority.
“I hope the ministers who wrongfully terminated the GPCG contract and willfully caused financial loss to Ghana are preparing for the day of reckoning.” Hon Okudzeto Ablakwa stated.
The judgement debt payment made by government to GPCG limited is a sum of GH¢230,598,000 million which is equivalent to US$20 million serving as part settlement of the arbitral award.
