The flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress, John Dramani Mahama, has chastised the current administration over the termination of the PDS Concessionaire Agreement.
According to him, as someone who took over from the late President Atta-Mills the Ghana Compact 2 and negotiated with the Millennium Challenge Corporation and the US Government, he is deeply disappointed in the Akufo-Addo led government’s handling of the Compact.
In a post on his Facebook timeline, Mr Mahama wrote “Let me emphasise that, all these shady happenings were avoidable if the right decisions, with the future development of Ghana in mind, were taken, and not parochial decisions that reflect the sad and worsening situation of state capture that we are experiencing under Akufo-Addo.”
He noted, “.. a decision by the MCC to withdraw $190 million from the Compact funding. It’s a sad day for us all. This money was meant to improve the efficiency of our electricity utility corporation.”
“We are all deeply disappointed because of the self-serving decisions that were taken, the deliberate acts perpetuated with the crude support of the Flagstaff House in the ECG Concessionaire Agreement that has led us to where we are today. This was absolutely needless and could have been avoided,” he stressed.
