“An unprecedented allocation…a gigantic allocation in excess of 1.5 billion cedis has been made to the office of government machinery. To put this into perspective, in 2012 the office of government machinery was allocated only 236 million cedis, in 2013 only 312 million, in 2014 only 326 million, in 2015 only 453 million…if combine all those years…you will get just about 1.3 billion cedis, it doesn’t come up to the 1.5 billion allocated to the office of the government machinery,” Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa said.

Meanwhile, minister for monitoring and evaluation, Dr Anthony Osei has fiercely debunked these claims stating that the allocation to the Flagstaff House is huge because of the several new ministries created by President Akufo-Addo.
