General Mosquito opined that the NPP failed to listen to good advice of the deal’s transaction advisor, the Millennium Development Authority (MiDA) for due diligence to be conducted on PDS.
The NDC scribe alleged that President Akufo-Addo, Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, the Finance minister Ken Ofori-Atta, ECG Board Chairman, Keli Gadzekpo and MiDA Board Chairman, Martin Eson-Benjamin can never be trusted when it comes to the PDS deal.
“Don’t trust these people. There is too much corruption in their DNA,” the NDC General Secretary noted.
He further called for dissolution of the MIDA and ECG Boards.
“They have failed the nation and proven to be undeserving of the critical mandate which has been entrusted into their care by Ghanaians.”
