"It Is Foolishness To Go And Borrow Money You Already Have" - Sam George Slams Akufo-Addo

The Member of Parliament (MP) of Parliament of Ningo-Prampram, Sam George has taken a swipe at President Akufo-Addo saying it is 'foolishness' to travel outside to go and borrow an amount of money his country already have.

The MP descended on President Akufo-Addo while responding to a question relating to lavish air trips.

Speaking on an Accra based television, he said "It is foolishness to go and borrow money you already have. We have enough funds to fund four major projects. Did the President go borrow before pushing the Marine Drive among others?"

"You are paying in excess of 30 million USD for the Marine Drive. You paid about 40 Million or thereabouts on Trade Fair redevelopment. Just these designs of four projects would have set up your development bank. Did you go and borrow money for those ones?"

"You are walking in India borrowing 12 Million USD to come and do Agric planting projects. You are borrowing 12 million but you have over 100 million to give somebody for a design"

"So it is the foolishness of being unable to appropriate tue monies that you have right and you spend it wrongly, it is that lack of wisdom that is making us angry and leading us to righteous anger on a Monday morning and say to our President that if he doesn't care about the people of Ghana, the people of Ghana, we care about ourselves"

The MP also expressed disappointment in Akufo-Addo administration over its failure to pay NABCO, NSS personnel.

He challenged the Akufo-Addo government to stop wasting lavishly on luxurious air trips and think about the concerns of its citizens.
