Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa says it is most inhumane and totally unconscionable for Ghanaians to be cruelly exploited for personal profit by some of our own leaders in President Akufo-Addo’s government during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The North Tongu Constituency Member of Parliament has revealed that, none of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s ministerial nominees have been frontal or forthright with Parliament’s Appointments Committee on the mysterious Frontiers Healthcare $150 airport antigen test.

According to him, the long awaited Transport Minister designate after many former ministers failed to take responsibility claiming to be unaware also says the contract between Ghana Airport and Frontiers is merely about renting space to Frontiers and nothing more. “He told us GACL had nothing to do with testing standards and the legal/medical compliance issues.” Ablakwa said.

In a statement, the Former Minority Ranking Member on Foreign Affairs Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa said, clearly, the Frontiers deal did not expand the frontiers of transparency and accountability.

He reassured that, this is not the end of their mission for answers and accountability. Rather, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Caucus in Parliament shall pursue this matter to its logical conclusion regardless of whose ox is gored.
