An avowed leading member of the NDC, and resident at Dome Kwabenya Constituency of the greater Accra region, Hon. Hadji Mustaphar, has said on ahotor fm’s Adekye Mu Nsem show aired on Tuesday that, appropriations of Getfund scholarships to some government appointees and surrogates of the Akufo Addo government who according to the Auditor general report benefited from the award scheme leaves much to be desired.
Mr. Mustapahar took a swipe at his own party , during a presentation on ahotor fm over the Getfund beneficiaries brouhaha.
He said during the era of Former President John Mahama in government, some of his henchmen dinned and wined with the then NPP in opposition, and also cushioned them in key strategic positions to the extent that, NPP members felt emboldened to enjoy from the National kitty , better than sympathizers, and footsoldiers of the ruling party who were in power.
He fumed, and lamented why, certain people in the NDC stabbed the former President at his back.
Hon. Hadji, stressed that, personalities such as Education Minister Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh, and MP for Dome Adjoa Sarfo cannot be classified as less privilege in society, to enjoy such a sponsorship package under the Getfund policy.
He called for a refund of the said monies and posited that, government must come clean on the issue since it smacks of thievery and corruption which have once again been unearthed by a credible state institution as the Auditor General’s Department.
The auditor general Mr. Daniel Domelevo had stated that he is unfazed with criticisms by people he describe as empty detractors, and avowed he will do all it takes to hold public officers accountable.
The NDC financier and philanthropists however opines that the future NDC government will make sure they position the youths in the party to have a fair share of pain and sacrifices they made in opposition, by way of due recognition and honor.
