The former minister for works and housing under the Mahama administration – Collins Dauda – has been slapped with criminal charges over the controversial Saglemi Housing Project.
Attorney General, Godfred Yeboah Dame, has revealed that four other NDC officials including a former sector minister under the Mahama administration, Kwaku Agyemang Mensah, contributed to the inflated cost of the housing project.
The Saglemi Housing project is currently on suspension after preliminary audits of the project shows it has been inflated at its price and $114 million embezzled by the erstwhile NDC administration.
The other NDC officials implicated are Kwaku Agyemang Mensah, Ziblim Yakubu, a former Chief Director at the Ministry; Andrew Clocanas, the Executive Chairman of Construtora OAS Ghana Limited; and one Novi Tetteh Angelo.
