Insist on Your Right to Education

Uneducated citizenry is like a pitch any game can be played on it. Illiteracy is what has given the politicians in Ghana the chance to fool so many people for so a long a time.

Tarzan’s Moustache Bills Charged On Ghana@50

Dr. Charles Wereko-Brobby

A detailed schedule of certified treasury payments as well as a schedule of certified internal payments from 2006 till 2008, have revealed some very shocking expenditure charged on the defunct Ghana@50 secretariat by Dr. Charles Wereko-Brobby, ex-CEO of the Secretariat.

According to a voluminous item-by-item expenditure in the possession of The Enquirer newspaper, on August 30, 2006, Dr. Wereko-Brobby requested and obtained a refund for expenditure incurred for trimming his moustache. As per pay voucher number 001/03, he got a refund of GH¢6.81 being “refund from John’s Salon Moustache.”

When Dr. Wereko-Brobby emerged from his hideout to be installed as Chief Executive of the Ghana@50 Secretariat without any traceable appointment letter by the National Planning Committee, headed by his by his brother-in-law, he spotted a very busy moustache.

As we know now, Dr. Wereko-Brobby went underground to quietly work as Adviser on Budget for the late Finance Minister, Kwadwo Baah-Wiredu, after he was removed from Volta River Authority (VRA), where he bought the controversial Strategic Reserve Plant (SRP), which became a liability and was accused by workers for blowing money on his office bathrooms instead of seeing to their welfare.

The Enquirer has also laid hands on the even more shocking revelations of how Dr. Wereko-Brobby spent the ¢2 billion claimed to have loaned the Ghana@50 Secretariat without credible documentation.
