The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) says the PDS scandal is Ghana’s biggest corruption scandal ever.
The General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia said the NDC is demanding that the government "completely abandon the idea of proceeding to engage a proposed restrictive tendering process or any other process for that matter for the selection of a new concessionaire with immediate effect."
Addressing a press conference on the PDS issue, Asiedu Nketia said this should be done "until a total clean up of the relevant state institutions of the crooks that caused the mess in the first place."
"It is imperative that these urgent actions be taken even as we await the official position of the Millenium Challenge Corporation (MCC) on the termination of the PDS concession and the future of the power compact itself," Asiedu Nketia said.
He added that the NDC holds the view that any attempt to select another concessionaire would be "tantamount to fetching water with a leaking basket if those who caused this PDS mess are still at post."
