Isaac Adongo Writes on the Controversial Agyapa Royalties Deal

Hon. Isaac Adongo MP for Bolga Central Constituency has also waded into the infamous controversial Agyapa Royalties deal discourse with an interesting piece.

Hon. Isaac Adongo’s fascinating piece is entitled, ‘Agyapa Royalties fraud is the last straw: The Akyem Sakawa Boys and Grandpas must go’

According to Isaac Adongo, the Agyapa Royalties deal is a big fraud on Ghana by President Akufo-Addo and his Akyem Mafia.

Hon. Isaac Adongo claimed in his piece that, the current administration mortgaged Getfund proceeds in excess of GH¢25 billion for the next 10 years to borrow $1.5 billion and yet you could not expand educational infrastructure and build new schools to end double track;

“You mortgaged bauxite burried on the ground to Sinohydro to borrow $2 billion but has nothing to show after almost 2 years”; He added.

Hon. Isaac Adongo further argued that, the Nana Akufo-Addo led government mortgaged ESLA proceeds for the next 10 years, in excess of GH¢30 billion in 10 years to raise energy sector bonds of about $1.3 billion and yet energy sector debts remain unpaid and adding that the government have since accumulated over $2 billion additional energy sector debt with power producers threatening to shut their power plants.

“You have exhausted the Ghana Infrastructure Investment Fund in which your predecessor JM left you $270 million, You have frittered away the Ghana Exim funds, doling it out to your in-law to invest in a hotel, In addition to borrowing $9 billion in 3 years in Eurobonds alone and illegally borrowing $500 million term bonds in February 2020, on the capital market, without Parliamentary approval in violation of Article 181 of the Constitution, all without anything to show. What magic can you perform with $500m Agyapa theft money?” The piece emphasized.

The MP further questioned that, how can Akufo-Addo mortgage revenues of about GH¢75 billion of the state for his maladministration to steal without caring about how his children and grandchildren will manage the economy into the future?

To him, no wicked man has ever ruled this country and destroyed Ghana’s fiscal and debt framework the way Akufo-Addo and the empty-lying Vice President Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia have done.

“It is estimated by industry players that only 11 major mining companies in Ghana will give Ghana an average of $250 million a year, $3 billion in 10 years and $4.250 billion in 15 years in royalty payments being planned to hand over to Agyapa Royalties for just $500m.”

“These estimates exclude new mining developments that will come onstream in the next 15 years such as the highly profitable Namdini Mining Development in the Upper East by Cardinal Resources. How did they value $4.250 billion in 15 years to arrive at $500m as 49% of that value.” The piece alleged.

The legislator in his conclusion remarks, said “You can’t put Lions in charge of sheep and expect to come back and meet the sheep alive. They will end up selling us to borrow to satisfy their insatiable corrupt habits if they are allowed one more year in office.”
