Ghana’s Information Minister, Kojo Opppng Nkrumah has advised Ghanaians not to vote for the flagbearer of main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama on December 7.
According to him, the resources of the country cannot be given to him to take charge because he has track record of giving Ghana’s bauxite to his own brother Ibrahim Mahama therefore he cannot be trusted with the resources of Ghana.
He added that Mahama would have given 70% of the country’s bauxite to his brother to manage if President Akufo-Addo has not taken over.
He said, “In December 2016 when the elections were done and we were preparing for a transition, the administration of the day led by Mr. John Dramani Mahama was working hard to transfer almost 70% of Ghana’s bauxite deposit to a company known as Exton Cubic closely related to Mr. Mahama’s brother”.
The MP for Ofoase-Ayirebi constituency speaking at the New Patriotic Party’s Virtual Rally on Sunday said;
“From 2017, when the Nana Addo administration assumed the reins of power, that bauxite was returned to Ghana and it is today being used to build roads and other infrastructure for the young people of this country to benefit. In whose hands can you trust that the natural resources of this country will be best used for young people? God has blessed us with Gold, Oil etc. but it took Nana Addo to say that the Oil revenue should be used to pay the school fees of Ghanaian children”.
