Minister Diverts Relief Items
Contrary to the government’s agenda of zero-tolerance for corruption, some of its Ministers continue to exhibit corrupt practices that are uncharacteristic of democratic pluralism and counter-productive to the electoral victory of the ruling NPP in the next general elections.
According to the FREE PRESS, a classic example of corruption in ministerial circles is the alleged diversion of relief items by Hon. Mustapha Iddrisu Ali, Minister of Works and Housing and MP for Gupkegu-Sabongida constituency in the Tamale municipality of the Northern Region to his campaign “ware house.”
The relief items were sent to Tamale in connection with the recent clash between NPP and NDC supporters that resulted in destruction of property and lost of lives in Tamale.
