"Akufo-Addo diverted COVID funds for his re-election campaign in 2020" - John Mahama

“Akufo-Addo diverted COVID funds for his re-election campaign in 2020” – John Mahama

National Democratic Congress (NDC) Speaker in Ghana, John Mahama, has alleged that President Nana Akufo-Addo misappropriated funds meant to fight COVID-19 during his campaign in the 2020 elections.

The former President made these allegations during the 24th African Business Conference organised by the Harvard Business School.

He said some GH¢33 billion earmarked for the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic ended up in the campaign of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the president.

“To make matters worse, the pandemic windfall of over GH¢33 billion which could have cushioned the economy remains unaudited and is believed to have been used largely in the quest to win the 2020 elections at all cost,” Mr Mahama told the gathering.
