The Member of Parliament for Adenta Kojo Adu Asare has lashed out at his own party the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) for doing very little for Ghanaians to know the magnitude of misappropriation that prevailed during the tenure of the erstwhile NPP administration.

According to him, the NDC could not take advantage of chairing the Public Account Committee of Parliament from 2001 to 2008 to let Ghanaians know how corrupt the then NPP government was through publishing the report in the press.

He wondered why the NDC failed to make public findings of the Auditor – General’s report which unraveled some grievous financial deals against the state as the opposition New Patriotic Party is currently doing with the 2009 Auditor –General’s report.

The 2009 Auditor –General’s report has been the reference point to the payment of several judgment debt including the infamous Woyome scandal from which the opposition has made a lot of political capital to the advantage of the ruling government.

Contributing to a panel discussion on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo show, Hon. Adu – Asare emphasized the need for the government and its communication team to make a data available to Ghanaians for them to compare between the NDC and NPP which party is better in terms of improving the lives of Ghanaians.

He also condemned the NPP National Youth Organizer; Anthony Karbo for his comment during the NPP’s Greater Accra rally over the weekend where he called on the party youth to be aggressive and fearless in the discharge of duties for the party in the upcoming December general elections.

Hon. Adu Asare stated that the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) was behaving as though, this year’s general elections is the end of the road for the party.

He said utterances by some of party leaders are becoming a great source of worry for peace loving Ghanaians as the NPP continue to act like the world will come to an end if they fail to win the upcoming elections.
