Johnson Asiedu Nketia, General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has argued that the 4 More For Nana agenda which is being propagated by the incumbent NPP government is a hoax of the real agenda of President Akufo-Addo whose aim is to get “four more years to steal more.”
Speaking at the NDC’s 16th weekly press briefing on November 10, Asiedu Nketia alleged that the dire call by the Akufo-Addo led administration for a second term is not in the interest of Ghana but the president’s selfish interest in connection to enriching his family.
He said, “He (Akufo-Addo) doesn’t care about you and me. All our President dreams about is four more years to steal more; four more years to promote cronyism and shady nepotistic deals like the Agyapa deal, and four more years to advance his family’s rape of the nation’s resources.”
According to him, President Akufo-Addo “is not a man interested in safeguarding state resources and promoting the collective good of the Ghanaian people.”
He said the NPP government has failed to bring to book all culprits in the “shady” transactions, as stated by the Special Prosecutor.
He quizzed, “Is it not intriguing and most bizarre, that President Akufo-Addo in his official response to the verdict of the Special Prosecutor, urged the nation to defer proceedings on this “Agyapa” daylight robbery until after the upcoming elections?”
Unsurprisingly, Mr Asiedu Nketia called on Ghanaians to remain calm while promising an intervention by the Mahama-led administration with regards to “investigating and punishing all culprits and masterminds behind the Agyapa deal through the Operation Sting crusade” if voted into power on December 7.
“The new government of His Excellency John Dramani Mahama and the NDC “Insha Allah”, shall investigate this “Agyapa” robbery and punish all the culprits and masterminds behind it through the Operation Sting crusade,” he stated.
Asiedu Nketia’s remarks concerning the NPP government come off the back of a report published by Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu on the Agyapa Royalties deal.
Martin Amidu’s findings disclosed some anomalies detected in the government’s transaction with the Agyapa Minerals Royalties Limited.
“The process of the selection of the Transaction Advisor(s) disclosed a reasonable suspicion of bid-rigging and corruption activity including the potential for illicit financial flows and money laundering in the arrangement of the fees payable to Databank of Ghana as the decoy,” Martin Amidu had stated.
