Government must apologies to the previous NDC administration---Builsa South MP

Member of Parliament (MP) for Builsa South, Dr. Clement Apaak has taken a swipe at government after it announced that it has taken delivery of 34 vehicles out of the 43 procured by the previous administration.
According to government, it had to renegotiate and saved over $3million from the $9million luxury cars that were procured by the previous administration.

The previous administration ordered the supply of the vehicles worth more than $9m barely eight days to the handing over of power in 2016.

The 34 vehicles which arrived over the weekend are capable of firing rounds of ammunition and are designed to withstand the effects of a hand grenade.

In an interview on the recent development, Dr. Apaak criticized government for tarnishing the image of the previous administration and former President Mahama.

He further noted that government was hypocritical and it was proper that the current government apologies to the erstwhile National Democratic Congress government led by former President John Mahama.

 “It is very clear that from the onset when this issue became public largely through the indiscretion of the incoming government we came public to indicate that contrary to the agenda which was being perpetrated and I still think it is being perpetrated by the NPP to suggest that our government was wasteful, incompetent and presided over activities that were detrimental to the interest of the nation that it wasn’t the case.”

He added, “We have made the case all along that those 43 vehicles were requested at the behest of the incoming NPP government before, during and after the inauguration of the transitional team which was composed of elements from our exiting government and the incoming government.”

“They must apologies to former President Mahama for trying to impugn his reputation and yet have gone on to receive vehicles that they themselves requested to their own personal satisfaction in terms of their reputation,” he stressed.
