“The New AMERI Deal Is A Scam” – President Akuffo-Addo
AMERI, a name that became very popular in the everyday Ghanaian’s parlance when the National Democratic Congress was in power in 2016. The company was brought in by the erstwhile President Mahama government to help them solve the problem of power fluctuations ‘dumsor’ they plunged the nation into.
Ghana’s parliament this week resurrected the conversation about the AMERI power deal. The deal which was supposed to last for five (5) years under the former government has seen a shock rise to fifteen (15) years.
The MP’s in the majority of Ghana’s parliament believe it is a great deal, which is way better than that of the former NDC government. The president, Nana Akuffo-Addo, speaking on the side lines after playing a football match yesterday expressed shock when we asked him about this new deal. President Akuffo-Addo stated he had no idea that the deal was going to fifteen (15) years.
He made the point that the new deal is a complete scam and he will never allow it. He also told us he will make sure his very trusted cabinet which comprise Rev. Owusus Bempah, Counsellor Lutterodt, Angel Obinim, Afia Schwarzenegger and Kennedy Agyepong shot the decision down before it becomes a reality.
