In a startling revelation, former Member of Parliament for Obuasi-East, Edward Ennin, has alleged that several MPs from the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) become millionaires through contracts awarded during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Despite widespread claims of economic hardship caused by the pandemic in Ghana by the NPP, Ennin alleges that certain politicians have significantly benefitted financially.

Ennin stated, “COVID-19 made a lot of people millionaires, including some MPs I know. Contracts were given to them, NPP MPs. They now drive in good cars and have a lot of houses.” he told Nana Yaa Brefo on Yen Nsempa, Onua FM on June 21, 2024.

He further emphasized his point by highlighting the lack of accountability surrounding the funds allocated for COVID-19 relief efforts. “We got money coming to the country and the Auditors even find it difficult to account for the money,” he claimed, suggesting widespread mismanagement and corruption.

The politician did not mince words when critiquing the performance of President Akufo-Addo’s second term in governance, according to him, the country can attribute its hardship to the majority of the appointed Ministers who are not up to the task and President Akufo-Addo’s inability to listen to advice.

“Majority of the appointed ministers are not up to the task, it is not by merit, I don’t want to mention names, this is Africa, when you mention names, they think you hate them. But as an individual, you can pick a Minister, look at his work, access their achievements, and check if they deserve to be there.”
