Don’t cover up PDS rot-Minority to Prez

Former Deputy Minister for Energy under the Mahama led administration; Abu Jinapor has called on government to desist from its attempt to cover up the Power Distribution Services (PDS) saga.

In a statement, the former deputy minister said he has gathered information to the effect that  ‘’…the so-called Guarantee was procured under dubious circumstances, a clear violation of CP 24 and 31 which means the PDS takeover was illegal.’’

Mr. Jinapor who is also the Member of Parliament for Yapei Kusawgu Constituency said ‘’It must equally be made clear that we shall remain vigilant and resolute in our quest to ensure that the continuous looting and plundering of the resources of ECG which is our collective strategic national asset is brought to an immediate halt.

From the foregoing, the Akufo-Addo Government must immediately publish both the FTI Consulting Group report and Government’s own report for scrutiny by the good people of Ghana.’’

GOVERNMENT ATTEMPTS TO COVER UP OUTCOME OF PDS INVESTIGATIONS MUST CEASE.

Incontrovertible information available has confirmed an orchestrated agenda by government to manipulate findings of investigations into the PDS scandal.

It is troubling that despite public outcry and major resentment following the PDS scandal which has been described by several government officials including the Energy Minister, Mr. Peter Amewu as a Fraudulent deal perpetuated by the PDS Consortium and its accomplices, the Akufo-Addo Government is hell bent on manipulating the outcome of investigations to the detriment of the Nation.

It is equally mind boggling to note that after promising the people of Ghana that investigations into the alleged Fraudulent deal would be completed within one month, Government officials have resorted to one excuse after another to buy more time ostensibly to distort the real findings and hoodwink unsuspecting Ghanaians.

I wish to place on record that the investigations by both Government of Ghana and FTI Consulting Group of USA have been completed and ready for action.

Unimpeachable information has revealed that due to the culpability of officialdom especially in the report, the Akufo-Addo led Government has deliberately decided to frustrate, dither and delay the publication of the final report and the pursuit of consequential actions with the objective of masterminding a cover up.

Government must be made aware that we are aware of the fact that the so-called Guarantee was procured under dubious circumstances, a clear violation of CP 24 and 31 which means the PDS takeover was illegal.

The Akufo-Addo led administration must therefore be cautioned that any attempt to cover up that specific critical issue will not be countenanced.

It is also clear that some Government officials discharged their duties with negligence and must not be shielded as this Government is strenuously attempting to do.

It must equally be made clear that we shall remain vigilant and resolute in our quest to ensure that the continuous looting and plundering of the resources of ECG which is our collective strategic national asset is brought to an immediate halt.

From the foregoing, the Akufo-Addo Government must immediately publish both the FTI Consulting Group report and Government’s own report for scrutiny by the good people of Ghana.

Anything short of a complete, unedited and undeducted report shall be rejected and denounced.

Signed,

John Abdulai Jinapor
Former Deputy Minister for Energy
