The flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress, (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has expressed disappointment in President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for his handling of the Millennium Challenge Corporation Compact (MCC).

He is of the view that, the controversy surrounding the Compact was ‘absolutely needless’ and could have been avoided.”

Expressing his opinion on his Facebook Timeline, Mr. Mahama, who is a former President of Ghana, said: “Let me emphasise that, all these shady happenings were avoidable if the right decisions, with the future development of Ghana in mind, were taken, and not parochial decisions that reflect the sad and worsening situation of state capture that we are experiencing under Akufo-Addo.”

According to Mr. Mahama: “Soon, I will be sharing my position on the state of our struggling nation with the good people of Ghana. But allow me to say that as someone who took over from President JEA Mills of blessed memory and the Ghana,, Compact 2 negotiations with the Millennium Challenge Corporation and the US Government, I am deeply disappointed in Nana Akufo-Addo for his handling of the Compact.”

Ghana lost an amount of $190 million granted it from the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), following the termination of the concession agreement between Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) and private operator Power Distribution Services Ghana Ltd (PDS).

Mr. Mahama believes, this could have been avoided, adding “It’s a sad day for us all. This money was meant to improve the efficiency of our electricity utility corporation.”
