The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Deputy Director of Communications, Samuel Awuku, has disclosed that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) allegedly spent a whopping ¢28billion in the just-ended national delegates congress, to get President John Evans Atta Mills re-elected as the party’s flagbearer to lead the NDC in the 2012 general elections.
He said because NDC thought Ghanaians would ask questions on the source of such money, the party shared it among the Members of Parliaments (MPs), Municipal, Metropolitan and District Chief Executives (MMDCE’s) to be distributed to the party executives in the various regions for the delegates.
“Is that money from the Common Fund (CF) or from the Consolidated Fund (CF)? We want to know where those monies came from,” he said.
The Deputy Director of Communications made this known on Wednesday when he met the Central Regional communication team as part of a one day workshop organised to equip them to map out strategies to battle the NDC in the 2012 general elections.
In his address, Mr. Awuku expressed worry over how the Mills administration had for the past two years not been able to fix the economy and provided the needed infrastructural facilities to boost the living conditions of Ghanaians.
According to him, the NDC had left the country’s developmental problems unattended to and focused on misappropriating state funds that could have been used to solve the numerous challenges facing the country.
Mr. Awuku noted that the rate at which cocaine cases were fast growing manifested how the NDC could control the menace as the NPP did, adding that President Mills, instead of investigating such cocaine cases, was rather granting culprits bail since they belonged to NDC.
“Under Mills administration, people arrested with cocaine are granted bail while it was not so in NPP and Kufuor’s administration. We sought conviction for people involved in the case of MV Benjamin cocaine saga but when NDC assumed power, they released them with the view that they will open a fresh investigation into the matter but has since not done that,” he added.
He claimed President Mills had been deceiving Ghanaians with his self-acclaimed God-fearing attributes, adding that a time would come when people would stop believing God because President Mill had been linking his bad attitudes to God.
