Ghanaians now using VAR to confirm Akufo-Addo
A former Chief Executive of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) has said voter disappointment in the Akufo-Addo government is now ‘clearly written on the wall’.
Mr Alex Mould said with the government embrioled in several corruption scandals over the past three years, the NPP government’s final objective was to deceitfully “capture political power” in 2020.
“No wonder people are now using Video Assistant Referee (VAR) to confirm if the President is really the same person they voted for. Hardship in Ghana is real and unbearable,” he jabbed.
He accused the Akufo-Addo government of state capture explaining it is “the efforts of a small number of people who use their power and influence to change the laws and rules of engagement to amass wealth at the expense of the state by stealing assets.”
“And it is undoubtedly the trademark of this corrupt NPP government led by President Akufo Addo,” the former GNPC boss said.
Speaking at the first general meeting with members of Tertiary Education Institutions Network (TEIN), the student wing of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) at the University of Cape Coast (UCC) on Saturday, he cited the suspension of electricity company Power Distribution Service (PDS) and the AKER deal in the upstream energy sector, as examples of state capture under the NPP government.
“In my recent articles, I questioned why everyone is quiet following the facts that emerged from the ‘FTI Report’ and the ‘Government to Qatar delegation Report’ that have exposed the gargantuan on-going state capture. I will reiterate that we have all been played,” he stressed.
