A Deputy Minister of Information, Pius Enam Hadzide has exposed the NDC saying the government’s tireless effort on the investigations on the PDS saga brought about the current issues they have uncovered.
He stated that the government and its team worked on the brouhaha surrounding the PDS scandal to reveal all the truth in the deal and has nothing to do with the NDC’s lies and propaganda.
The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has patted itself on the back for exposing “the biggest corruption scandal in Ghana’s history,” the Power Distribution Services (PDS) deal.
But speaking in an interview with Lawyer Ohene Djan on ‘Pae Mu Ka’ on Kingdom FM 107.7, Mr. Hadzide, “stressed that, all the NDC has been trying to do is play politics with the PDS scandal but says the government will not be distracted.”
Its General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, at a press conference in Accra praised the role of party MPs in exposing the Akufo-Addo government’s attempt to loot national assets.
PDS which managed Ghana’s electricity distribution had its concession agreement with government terminated last Sunday
The termination came days after the NDC piled pressure on the government over its handling of the deal.
The government maintains, the company failed to provide a valid demand guarantee which would have satisfied its financial ability to manage ECG.
According to the NDC, the government failed to do enough due diligence before settling on PDS as a concessionaire.
