President of the Republic of Ghana Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has opined that there is no evidence that his government has wasted the country’s funds.
According to the President there is no evidence that people under his watch have wasted Ghana’s funds.
He made this comment while delivering a speech at an anti-corruption conference which took place in Accra over the weekend.
“It is difficult to sustain any serious argument about the wanton dissipation of public funds in my time as president,” he noted.
Denying the fact that no funds under his administration has gone wasted he stated that his government has spent billions of cedis on education, health and infrastructure.
“My government has spent a lot of money on education, health, infrastructure particularly roads, agriculture, industry, security services and the anti-corruption institutions than by any other government in the fourth republic if not in the entire history of Ghana.
“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,” he stated.
