The Amount Of Money Spent On Car Tyres And Batteries At The Presidency Between Jan-Sep 2022 Will Discourage You From Voting
One of the Members of Parliament in Ghana was kind enough to share some insight of how Ghanaians taxes are being used at the parliament.
The Member of Parliament for the North Tongu Constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has revealed that the Presidency spent an amount of GH15 million on the replacement of tyres and batteries of vehicles in its pool between January and September 2022.
The Member of Parliament made this known after analyzing documents on expenditure provided to Parliament by the Presidency adding that this makes a mockery of the government’s plea to Ghanaians to burden a share in the current economic crisis.
According to the MP, the Presidency spent a colossal sum of GH51,109,137.86 on fuel during the 9 months.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s regional tours during that period also cost the taxpayer GH16,906,272.45 million.
The MP who doubles as the Ranking on Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee said the Presidency also spent GH59.4 on operational enhancement expenditure.
In a Facebook post, he said the fuel bills paid at the presidency within the 9 months under review cost the suffering Ghanaian taxpayer a colossal GH51.1million.
He also indicated that, the office of Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has on three occasions between January and September 2022 demanded what is simply described in the expenditure documents as a release of funds for “Urgent and other emergencies activities”.
In fact Ghana we are going forward.
