A memo sighted by stated that Joseph Dasanah –Amidu’s secretary, and an accountant, both signed for fuel coupons even though, they do not qualify to as unconfirmed staff.

He is alleged to have made fuel claims of ¢400 and ¢300 for his 2018 Toyota Corolla in a day.

Meanwhile, an independent assessments show a 2018 Toyota Corolla uses about 800 cedis a month even though Joseph Dasanah requested for 700 cedis in one of the days.
