Member of Parliament for Ahafo Ano South in the Brong Ahafo Region, Hon. Stephen Balado Manu seems to have become fed up with the operations of the Mahama-led government.
Hon. Balado Manu, making his submissions on Oman FM’s political programme “National Agenda”, strongly held that the work by government under the able leadership of President Mahama to unearth the rot in the GYEEDA programme is only intended to “create, loot and share” the money in the State coffers with its cronies.
He therefore doubted the commitment of the government to do due diligence to the content of the report because to him, government is just putting up an impression before Ghanaians.
Alluding to the ruling party’s aversion towards the erstwhile Kufour administration’s initiative of bridging the gap between youth employment and unemployment issues, Hon. Balado Manu did not mince words as he believed the incumbent government is finding a “way to loot the money in the State coffers in order to enrich themselves for Ghana to be poverty-stricken.”
He also took a swipe at the Presidential Advisor, P.V Obeng, who is presiding over the committee set up by President Mahama to review the GYEEDA report, saying the choice of the Presidential Advisor is a ploy for him to fiddle with the report.
Meanwhile, President Mahama on Monday assured Ghanaians that under his administration, GYEEDA will be restructured to “let it achieve the objective for which it actually was set up.”
“GYEEDA has run into some problems because of poor management and coordination…The government is working on that”, President Mahama assured.
