Minister of Zongo and Innercity Development, Dr. Mustapha Abdul-Hamid has said what can be more ‘sakawa’ that a President signing off 75 percent of Ghana’s bauxite concession to his brother just three weeks after losing the 2016 elections.
Speaking at a press conference in Accra, Dr. Abdul-Hamid said the acts of the New Democratic Congress flagbearer John Dramani Mahama better fit the ‘sakawa’ tag and not what he is endorsing.
“In any event, if we are talking about sakawa, what is more sakawa, than three weeks after you’ve lost an election, you sign off 75 percent of Ghana’s bauxite deposits to your brother? You hand over our resources, bauxite resources to your brother three weeks after you’ve lost an election,” he said.
He quizzed: “So, you that you steal our resources and give it to your rother, somebody comes and takes that resources and leveraging it for the benefit of the Ghanaian people, you and that person, who qualifies to be called sakawa?”.
“So, really and truly, I think that we should call a spade a by its name,” Dr. Abdul-Hamid said
