The National Communications Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi has revealed that, John Dramani Mahama will definitely prosecute some appointees under the Akufo-Addo administration if he wins election 2020.
Mr. Gyamfi noted that the first NPP appointee that will be prosecuted will be the Minister for Special Development Initiative (SDI), Hawa Koomson.
He explained that the SDI Minister will face prosecution for causing financial loss to country and also embezzlement of funds.
The outspoken NDC communicator cited the dug-outs constructed by the Akufo-Addo-led NPP government under the 1-Village-1-Dam initiative as examples of projects which caused financial loss to the state.
“How can you use excavators to construct ponds which you term as dams when they are to be called excavator ponds? The so-called dams were to be built to serve as irrigation for farmers in the said regions during the dry seasons, but the dams are nowhere to be found during the current dry season, yet you want to prevent citizens from asking for what their money has been used for,” he said on Accra based UTV.
Sammy Gyamfi also noted that, Madam Koomson’s ministry have undertaken a lot of very questionable projects which she must answer.
“…Indeed that Minister I have told her [Minister for Special Development Initiative] and UTV should note it down that she [ Hawa Koomson] is a future candidate for a prosecution on the charge of willfully causing financial loss to the state because she knew what she was constructing will not stand the test of time,” he fumed on UTV's 'Adekye Nsroma' show.
Sammy Gyamfi was picked up by the police on Monday, January 26, 2020, after a TV programme over complaints that he is involved in cybercrime.
His arrest caused NDC party members to amass at the Police Headquarters in Accra to demand his release.
The police subsequently released him.
