A statement from a communicator Abraham Boafo in the opposition party National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Nkwanta South Constituency, Volta region has called for an account concerning the passing out ceremony of the NABCO program held yesterday.
Read the full statement below;
TAXPAYERS MUST KNOW THE AMOUNT OF THEIR MONIES SPENT IN ORGANIZING THE NABCO PASSING OUT CEREMONY
For the sake of transparency and accountability, I entreat government to bring to the public domain, the amount of the taxpayer money spent in passing out the beneficiaries of the nation builders corps.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo who promised the good people of Ghana during the 2016 electioneering year of bringing a world class transparency and accountability governance. We must be serious to see the fulfillment of this very particular promise, if our president cannot accomplished any of the thousands of promises made.
The ordinary taxpayer must know what comes in and goes out from the coffers of government to enhance the accountability and transparency governance pledged during the 2016 electioneering year.
For almost two years now, the ordinary taxpayer is still waiting to sense that world class transparency and accountability governance as promised by the current administration.
For the fact that, this administration is finding it difficult to pass out the right to information law, the ordinary taxpayer is dissatisfied already, and also sensing a failure in fulfilling that particular promise made by the Nana Addo lead Npp government once again.
I’m therefore calling on the NABCO Secretariat to provide the entire public with the accurate and truthful information on the amount of the taxpayers money spent in organizing the passing out ceremony of nation builders corps beneficiaries today.
For me not to waste too much time on this call, I plead with the media to help me augment this course as it is mandatory to speak for the vulnerable and voiceless.
God bless Mother Ghana.
A CONCERNED TAXPAYER
