John Boadu, Deputy Communications Director of the New Patriotic Party says Ghanaians should blame President John Mahama for the leaked report regarding the Ghana Youth Employment and Enterpreneurial Development Agency (GYEEDA) programme.
Reacting to the President’s recent declaration that the leaked report is not the final document, John Boadu said President Mahama cannot absolve himself from blame because the report was handed over to him and the onus was on him to avoid the possibility that any information concerning the contents of the report would suddenly come into the public light.
President John Mahama, addressing civil society groups at the Flagstaff House on Monday, revealed that the report in circulation is not the final document and therefore assured the nation that the final report will be published once the review committee presided by Presidential Advisor, P.V Obeng, finishes its work.
He however admitted that the GYEEDA programme is bedeviled with problems due to “poor management”.
“GYEEDA has run into some problems because of poor management and coordination“…The government is working on that,” President Mahama said.
This notwithstanding, the NPP Deputy Communications Director expressed doubt about the intent of government to restructure GYEEDA, saying the “attitude and objective for setting up the committee with the intent to restructure GYEEDA, and thus, deduct portions and give them to others, by God’s grace it will backfire very, very quickly.”
The President, he averred, should be chided “for putting the image of individuals whose names are in the report” into disrepute.
