President of Ghana Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo has stated emphatically that his government hasn’t wasted public funds in any way.
The President has once again defended the expenditure of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration since they assumed office.
According to him, there is no proof of any wanton dissipation of public funds in his time as President. Akufo-Addo said this when he delivered a speech at an anti-corruption conference in Accra over the weekend.
The President further explained that his government has spent billions of cedis on education, health and infrastructure.
“Furthermore, after all these expenditures, my government was still able to find some GHS25 billion to pay for the refund of depositors monies arising from the financial sector crisis.
“These expenditures indicate clearly what taxpayers monies and the revenues of government has been used for by the Akufo-Addo government,” Akufo-Addo added.
