Abraham Amaliba, a prominent NDC member, has stated that his party is preparing proof on the government’s borrowings and bonds issued in the last five years, as well as what percentages went to the Finance Minister alone.
According to Amaliba when the government issues bonds, Mr. Ofori-Atta receives 1% but uses his Databank to front the transactions.
According to the member of the NDC legal team, “once again, they are going to roll out a bond.”
“Ken Ofori Atta will get 1% as usual using his Databank transaction adviser,” he added, “we are coming out with details of all the borrowings and what has gone to him.”
He added that the best way to “burden-share,” as the Finance Minister likes to say, “is to bring all the loot onto the table, then we share to each other.”

With the introduction of the E-Levy Bill, he accused the government of “stealing” from the people, and the hurry by President Akufo-Addo to sign the bill into law ignoring the fact that the Supreme Court case on the E-levy is convincing enough to wait on the bill.
However, Palgrave Boakye Danquah, a Government Spokesperson on Governance and Security who was also on the TV show, defended President Akufo-Addo’s decision on Thursday, claiming that the Bill is not under any injunction.
