Clement Wilkinson, a member of the new patriotic Party’s communications team, has made the bold and almost unbelievable claim that the millions of dollars and pounds discovered in the home of the minister of sanitation and water resources may have been unreported donations she received at a recent funeral.
The team contended that Cecilia Dapaah’s two massive funerals, as well as the deaths of her mother and brother a year prior, could account for this. They also said that the enormous sums found in her Abelemkpe home could be explained by the two funerals.
The corporation that dredged the Odaw River, he claimed, may be responsible for the big donations.
“Cecilia Dapaah could have received a $2 million funeral payment from the corporation that received $43 million to dredge the Odaw River. Knowing what you do The donation would not be handled until the family gathers to review the complete donation. It might be the cause of why she had the money at her house.
Felix Kwakye Fosu, a former deputy minister of information, published portions of the video on Twitter after being astonished by the NPP Communicator’s bizarre and outrageous response.
The domestic staff of the minister is charged with stealing $100,000, $300,000 Euros, millions of Ghanaian cedis, and tens of thousands of cedis worth of jewellery and apparel.
The minority is pressuring the minister to step down, while civil society and anti-corruption organisations are calling for the president to fire the minister if he or she continues in office.
