AFAG wants IEA to hold President John Mahama to task

Pro-NPP pressure group Alliance for Accountable Governance (AFAG) wants the Institute for Economic Affairs (IEA)to use Wednesday night’s presidential debate to bring the President John Mahama to respond to the series of corruption cases reported against him.

AFAG stated in a release on Wednesday that, “for many years now, the NDC and the President have avoided the credible corruption charges against them by AFAG, the media, whistle-blowers and other civil society groups”.

“Today, the IEA has the opportunity to bring the President to respond to these alarming corruption charges. Ghanaians expect the IEA not to fail in this endeavour”.

For many years now, the NDC and the President have avoided the credible corruption charges against them by AFAG, the media, whistle-blowers and other civil society groups. Today, the IEA has the opportunity to bring the President to respond to these alarming corruption charges. Ghanaians expect the IEA not to fail in this endeavour.

AFAG on our part wishes the President to respond to these issues and if he fails to respond to them as he has done on many occasions, IEA must bring him to answer them in the interest of national development, accountability, transparency and probity.

AFAG urges the President to tell the nation his fight against corruption, with respect to the following issues;

These are our concerns;

A. On the Alfred A. Woyome scandal, on April, 2010, before the matter was commenced in court Hon. Mould-Iddrisu advised Dr. Kwabena Duffuor to pay two percent

B. Of the total value of the stadia project to Alfred Woyome (a total stranger) and Austro Invest (an unknown company), for an alleged breach of agreement with GoG. On 28th May, Hon. Mould-Iddrisu wrote to Hon. Dr. Duffuor,

Finance Minister with a copy to the Chief of Staff that she had negotiated with Alfred Woyome for him to accept the negotiated amount of Gh¢41,811,480.59 and that “having regard to the judgement debt against the State, I am of the opinion that we resolve this matter once and for all.”
