Member of Parliament for Nsawam/Adoagyire, Frank Annoh Dompreh has said the continues refusal by government to publish the much talked about GYEEDA investigative report is a conscious effort to protect certain high ranking officials in government.

He wondered what was in this report that has held back government from publicising the document despite several calls by civil society groups and other political activist who have the findings made public.

The report which was presented to the President about two months ago recommended the abrogation of contracts between government on one hand and Zoomlion, RLG Communications and Goodwill International Group on the other hand, and it also referred a number of GYEEDA officials to the Attorney-General for prosecution

President John Mahama has placed on record that the supposed GYEEDA report in circulation is not what is in possession of government.

Government’s reticent attitude about the report has got critics raises suspicions of government’s intentions to protect the suspects named in the report.

Speaking on Ghana’s Breakfast TV show on Wednesday, Hon. Frank Annor Dompreh stated that Ghanaians cannot wait to have the full details of the report which is believed to be laden with corruption.

‘’Are you telling me that when you publish this document the whole presidency will grind to a halt? What is there in that report, they keep telling us they are going to study it, can’t we Ghanaians also study it, is it a secret document, and then they come and tell us they have formed another committee to make recommendation on the previous committee’s work, this is laughable we don’t even know who are members of this new committee, the only person we know is P.V. Obeng and no one else’’ he lamented.

Hon. Annoh Dompreh challenged President Mahama to refer the report to the Public Accounts Committee of Parliament if the government has not got anything to hide, and that is when the rot in this investigation will come for all Ghanaians to see.
