Former President John Dramani Mahama has insisted that his government left a whopping $270 million for the Akufo Addo led administration.
He made this statement at an event dubbed Professional Dialogue Series on Monday.
There has been numerous allegations by the current administration led by President Nana Addo Dankwah AKufo Addo that the former administration led by John Dramani Mahama emptied the coffers of the state, leaving nothing but debt for the running of the economy of Ghana.
In a refute of the allegations, John Dramani Mahama noted that there were a lot of areas of the economy that his administration led sums of monies. He sighted the oil fields of Ghana and some funds allocated as examples.
“I left him revenue from two new oil fields; the Ten field and the ENI Sankofa field. I left him with $270 million in the Ghana infrastructure investment fund.
“I also left them $207 million in the Stabilisation Fund and about $300 million in the Sinking Fund,” he stated.
To add up, ex resident Mahama insisted that the allegations being made by the NPP is as a result of their failure to keep up with economic development projects and as such are looking for someone to blame.
