New Patriotic Party Member of Parliament for Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency, Hon. Emmanuel Kwabena Agyarko has blamed the rot at the National Service Secretary (NSS) and many other public service departments on the ruling NDC government.
According to him, the involvement of civil servants in graft is triggered by the way NDC government paid huge dubious judgment debts to individuals and companies at the expense of their efforts at the various departments and agencies to diligently raise funds to develop the country.
His comment follows a recent exposé by the BNI which revealed the payment of GHC7.9 million to 22,612 non-existent national service personnel in more than 100 districts in July 2014.
The NSS boss, Alhaji Alhassan Imoro is also on record for trying to bribe the investigators with huge sums of money in order to cover up the rot.
Speaking on the issue on Oman Fm Morning Show, Hon. Agyarko blamed the rise in the canker on the current political regime heading the various departments as they have been instructing the civil servants to document the various dubious judgment debts to their cronies.
Without faulting the civil servants entirely for the rot in the public sector, the Legislator posited that the millions of state revenue given to undeserving individuals and companies in the country might have motivated some civil servants to engage in the same practice.
Is it their faults that the Customs at the ports after busily creating wealth for the country and meeting their annual revenue targets, then the revenues they have toiled to generate end up in individuals pockets? The civil servants saw how GH˘51 million was given to Woyome, they saw and helped in documenting the 96 million Euros to CP company and they cannot forget the 25 million Euros to Waterville .money which was not suppose to be given to Isofoton, we paid to them; if you were the one toiling to generate these revenues for the country and someone is just sharing them, what will you do? The political masters have been instructing them to carry out some orders and they have been observing all these things as their many years of service without properties, political masters within 2 years will start putting up mansions. We cannot take them for granted .dont they sleep on pillows? If the fish begins to rot, it starts from the head, he stated.
