The Founder and Leader of the United Renaissance Party (URP) Mr. Charles Kofi Wayo, has said that he has information that members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government are in line to receive $14 million in bribes from Vodafone, 70% share owners of Ghana Telecom!
He has hinted that very senior members of government, including President John Evans Atta Mills and Minister for Communications Haruna Iddrisu may be benefiting from the lucre.
“We fought hard, Atta Mills and what is his name, Iddrisu, the Minister of Communications what is his name, he has forgotten his speech! We said we would overturn the Vodafone agreement! But now, it is alleged Vodafone has put out fourteen million dollars to bribe them! Have they taken the bribe? I have the information and I have seen how it works with Ghanaians!Iddrisu Haruna has changed his tune, and Atta Mills doesn’t seem to be as hard at his game as he should be!”
Kofi Wayo lamented. He has however said that he has reported his information to the President’s National Security Advisor, General Nunnoo Mensah and his National Security Coordinator Larry Gbevlo Lartey and he knows that they would get to the bottom of the issue.
“But I know that General Nunnoo Mensah is hard on it, and may God bless him! I know Gbevlo Lartey is hard on it! He’s outraged and I know that heads would role for the defence of taxpayers of Ghana,” Kofi Wayo said. Mr. Charles Kofi Wayo was speaking on his Sunday evening program ‘Feed Your Mind’ on Vibe FM, Accra on November 15, 2009.
He described Jake Obetsebi Lamptey, a leading member of the NDC, as a person with no brains who should ideally be plucking chickens by way of a profession, but had high praises for General Nunnoo Mensah and Col. Gbevlo Lartey. Rambling all over the place, he accused former President Kufuor of killing Alhaji Issah Mobila (the case is in court) and said that Kufuor should be in jail, even though he has the support of all leading members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).The United States ranked 19th,with a score of 7.5, while other aspiring global superpowers ranked substantially lower.
