HOPING TO GOD THIS IS NOT THE SAME.

 

SOMETIME AGO, AN OFFICE CALLED THE OFFICE OF ACCOUNTABILITY, DURING THE KUFFOUR REGIME WAS GIVEN HUGE SUMS OF GHANA MONEY. THAT WAS THE BUDGET FOR THAT EVIL OUTFIT. WHAT THAT PROF AND HER DAUGHTER DID WITH THE MONEY REMAINS A MYSTERY. THE OUTFIT GOT DISMANTLED QUIETLY.
BUT THE LIKES OF FRANKLIN CUDJOE DID NOT RAISE A FINGER.
MAYBE THEIRS WAS A DAMN SMARTER WAY OF CREATE, LOOT AND SHARE.
THIS GYEEDA ONE, I AGREE IS DUMB. PLAIN DUMB.

GYEEDA was created to loot state funds – Franklin Cudjoe

 

 

Franklin Cudjoe, IMANI President

The founding President of Policy think tank, IMANI Ghana, Franklin Cudjoe, has described the modules under the GYEEDA programme as money “vehicles to siphon money” from the state.

According to him there were no competition and transparency in the GYEEDA modules. ‘’Clearly there was no competitive playing field, these were projects that were cooked and then handed over to people…’’

Speaking on Citi FM’s News analysis programme, The Big Issue, Mr. Cudjoe described the whole GYEEDA programme as a “charade’’.

Mr. Cudjoe also said that the government appeared to be treating Ghanaians as “toddlers” as far as the GYEEDA issue was concerned.

“The reasons why we are evidently angry is that we are being treated like toddlers…’’

His comment comes as a result of discussions on two individuals; a former National Coordinator of the programme, Abuga Pele and the CEO of Goodwill International Group, Philip Akpeena Assibit who have been charged and standing trial as a result of the GYEEDA scandal.

But Mr. Cudjoe said the GYEEDA report was ‘’self-indicting’’ and as such all the Ministers, individuals and companies who were involved should face prosecution.

He furthered stated that the action being taken against the two gentlemen does not cover comprehensively the range expected.

The Ghana Youth Employment and Entrepreneurial Development Agency (GYEEDA), was set up by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to address the youth unemployment in the country.

Government of Ghana signed a number of contracts with various private firms who presented proposals about several employment modules that were incorporated into the programme.

It however, emerged that most of the contracts were fraudulently entered without any work done.

A committee was set to investigate the whole module and a report indicted certain individuals and companies.
