You Find Money For ‘Useless’ Things But None For 27 E-Blocks-Okudzeto Ablakwa To Nana Addo

Member of Parliament for North Tongu constituency, Okudzeto Ablakwa has said that the Akufo-Addo led administration can find money for ‘useless’ things but says it has no money to complete some 27 E-block in the Volta Region.

“You’re seeing a government that has totally misplaced its priority, does not care about what will move this country forward; it is only interested in their own creature comforts. It is such an embarrassment”, he stated while reacting to government’s decision to terminate the contract of the 27 E-block over lack of money.

Speaking on Class FM on Thursday he noted that government must prioritize education noting that the 27 E-blocks must be completed immediately.

Commenting on the government’s claim that the [previous administration made no budgetary allocation for the construction of the 27 E-block, Hon. Ablakwa said ”nobody leaves money behind for any project”.

“You come; when the national revenue is raised, taxes are collected, you do your allocation, you prioritise what must be prioritised”, he stated.

He expressed that Nana Addo led administration have shown from all indication that education isn’t its priority.

“This is a government that finds money for all kinds of useless endeavours, all kinds of extravagance, all kinds of ostentation”, he fumed.

“Look at the size of this government. Look at the size of presidential delegations. Look at the length of convoys – the number of new vehicles that they buy, a presidential convoy of 60 70, 80 vehicles – I mean, these are the things that we should cut down on so that we can redirect those resources into completing schools, completing hospitals”, he added.
