What Is This Noise About GYEEDA


The back and forth accusations about the Ghana Youth Employment and Entrepreneurial Development Agency (GYEEDA) rot is getting nauseating and looking like a slap in the face of Ghanaians.

Since the story broke about the alleged rot going on in there, we have had two Committees established to investigate and report. The first was the constituted by the Ministry of Youth and Sport, after they presented their report, President John Dramani Mahama, constituted another Committee headed by Paul Victor Obeng. All these was to ensure that all the I’s are dotted and the T’s crossed as far as the rot at GYEEDA was concerned.

The President, after PV Obeng’s Committee presented their report to him, asked that the various Constitutionally mandated bodies establish to deal with crimes perpetuated against the State take up the matter.

He directed the office of the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, as well as the Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO) take up the matter.
We are yet to get to the bottom of it, except that Government have abrogated contracts it entered into with Service providers and have asked that they refund monies paid them to the State.

Government Officials, have since last week, been pointing accusing fingers at Nana Akomea, for his complicity in some of the contracts, when he was a Minister in the erstwhile John Agyekum Kufuor Government.

Ghanaians are no longer interested in who did what and who didn’t do what, it is time for action. Nobody is above the law, if Nana Akomea, by any chance is found culpable of any wrong doing, we think the appropriate place and remedy is to take him to court.

What is going on now, will lead us nowhere, it is gradually degenerating into the arena of politics and once that festers, the rot that happened at GYEEDA, will also become one of the unsolved mysteries of our time.

Nana Akomea, has debunked the allegation and the game has just begun.
