The whereabouts of Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah in the wake of scandals hitting the government is not going unnoticed.
Some persons in government and out of government who keenly follow the activities of the Information Minister since at least 2021 indirectly suggest the ambitious Ofoase-Ayirebi MP may be avoiding any communication on numerous scandals affecting the government and officials of the government.
Some claim the Minister may be trying to “appear clean” by not communicating directly about the numerous scandals that hit the government.
In the last couple of days, the government has come under severe attacks and criticism following the theft of millions of Cedis, Dollars and Euros at the Residence of now Former Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources, Cecilia Dapaah.
Also, New Patriotic Party Flagbearer hopeful, Boakye Agyarko, narrated some alleged incidents that transpired during the re-negotiation of the 250 Megawatts Ameri Power Plant when he was the Minister for Energy.
Boakye Agyarko in an interview on Kumasi-based Asanteman FM, alleged that New Patriotic Party (NPP) stalwart, Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, re-negotiated the Ameri deal without the consent of the committee set up by the government to work on the deal.
Randy Abbey hits hard
Renowned Broadcaster and host of the Good Morning Ghana programme on Metro TV, Dr Randy Abbey, asked why the government has been silent on allegations made by the former Minister of Energy, Boakye Agyarko, on the Ameri deal.
Speaking on his programme on Wednesday, July 26, 2023, Dr Abbey wondered why the government has not responded to the serious allegations by a former cabinet minister, who is also a New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential hopeful, which implicate the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
“Mr Boakye Agyarko brings back the Ameri issues by making some serious revelations or allegations against the president, against Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko and the other persons. I’m yet to see or read a response from the government. This is about the second week and we are yet to see a response. “This was a cabinet minister, in fact, he was the campaign manager for then-candidate (Akufo-Addo), he is a senior member of the party (NPP) and in fact, he has been vetted and approved to run as a presidential candidate.
“He is saying these things and he is pointing to the president; he is pointing to others; he is mentioning names. We know the controversy around this whole Ameri deal, the issue of executive approval … corruption, insider dealings and others. Now this person makes all these allegations and it is like nobody wants to speak to it,” he said. He added that the government’s silence on the former energy minister’s allegation is similar to the illegal mining report by the former Minister for Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation which was ignored by President Akufo-Addo for years. “… What are we expected to take from that. Are we expected to accept that what he said is the truth and we should live with it? Or if he is peddling untruth shouldn’t something be done?” he asked.
