SoNA: COVID FUNDS WERE NOT MISUSED – Akufo Addo

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has said that funds for the fight against Covd-19 were not misused.

He said the funds were appropriately used for the purpose of tackling the pandemic.

Delivering the State of the Nation Address (SONA) in Parliament on Wednesday, March 8, he said “Covid funds were not missed. It is critical that we do not lose the confidence of the people that the crisis we were all in together was being abused. Nothing dishonourable was done with Civid funds.”

He mentioned among other things that frontline health workers were given 50 percent tax relief for the period. Also, he said, electricity and water tariffs were subsidized for Ghanaians during the period.

This comes in the wake of a recent audit report on Covid spending issued by the Audoeo General.

The Auditor-General report stated that “During our review, we noted that senior management staff and other supporting staff of the Ministry of Information paid themselves a total amount of GH¢151,500.00 as COVID-19 risk allowance for coming to work during the lockdown.”
