Officials of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) have been accused of causing financial loss to the state due to their reluctance to read documents before signing.
This is according to the deputy Director of Microfinance and Small Loans Centre (MASLOC), Maame Afia Akoto, who believes the NDC's handling of issues while in power was disastrous.
Her comments are in relation to the NDC's opposition to government's plan to terminate the AMERI power deal signed in 2015 by the erstwhile administration.
Under the NDC and former President John Mahama, Ghana signed the said deal in a bid to salvage the then frequent power outages which had shrouded a large part of the country.
However, upon losing power to the New Patriotic Party (NPP), the new government has iterated a will to terminate the deal, describing it as a sham and not in the best interest of Ghana.
The move, though, has been met with strong opposition from the NDC, who have so far boycotted Parliament sittings to register their displeasure.
But according Madam Afia Akoto, officials the NDC should be the last to utter any words, insisting the party is largely responsible for Ghana's struggles due to the bad deals they signed.
She went on to echo Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia's comments about NDC officials exhibiting lackadaisical attitudes towards reading.
“Vice president Bawumia has been vindicated over time of accusing officials of the NDC of not reading. It is clearly evident they do not read because a contract like AMERI deal signed by Dr Kwabena Donkor, would not have gone through if they had researched," the deputy MASLOC boss said.
She added that the NDC would have served the country better had they researched thoroughly before putting pen to the numerous deals they signed during their time in office.
