Anti-corruption group worried by delayed publication of GYEEDA report
NEWS | GACC News

The Executive Secretary of the Ghana Anti-Corruption Coalition, Ms Florence Dennis has expressed concern about the delayed publication of the committee report on the activities of the Ghana Youth Employment and Entrepreneurial Development Agency (GYEEDA).

She notes that government has signed on to an open government partnership which enjoins it to make the report open and transparent to the general public to give meaning to its commitment to open government.

 

Ms Dennis was speaking Monday evening on Adom FM's “Burning Issues” program, which was also live on Asempa FM.

 

Leaked copies of the report indicate the committee recommended the abrogation of contracts between government on one hand and Zoomlion, RLG Communications, and Goodwill International Group on the other hand, and also referred a number of GYEEDA officials to the Attorney-General for prosecution.

 

President John Mahama has since constituted another committee led by Advisor to the President, Mr. Paul Victor Obeng, to review the original report of the five-member Committee, which was led by Mr. Ferdinand Gunn, and make further recommendations.

 

Ms Dennis has however faulted the president for ordering a review instead of making the contents public.

 

Opposition political parties as well as anti-corruption agencies have also condemned the President’s order of a review, describing it as a ploy to cover-up alleged acts of corruption contained in the report.

 

Ms Dennis advised the President to publish the report to build public confidence in the ruling government, and also ensure that those implicated in the alleged corruption face the full rigours of the law.
