Felix Kwakye Ofosu is Deputy Information Minister
Government has described as unfortunate, the pressure being put on it to immediately take action on recommendations in the report on Ghana Youth Employment and Entrepreneurial Development Agency (GYEEDA).
The committee which investigated operations at GYEEDA submitted a report on its findings to President John Mahama last week
The report indicted six top GYEEDA officials for corruption and fraud and also recommended their arrest and prosecution.
Speaking at the Flagstaff House daily press briefing, a Deputy Minister of Information, Felix Kwakye Ofosu said government has no difficulty in implementing recommendations in the report.
“The President when he received it made a very clear statement that there will be radical changes. If government had a difficulty with implementing the recommendations in the report, the president would not have that commitment. It is only fair that you allow the President time to study the report and take appropriate action.”
He urged the general public to understand that “governance is a bit more complex than just pandering to media reports and commentary run by persons outside government. It is important that things are done properly and therefore it is a bit unfortunate that people are attempting to stampede government into taking action on a report that had been received barely a week ago.”
He gave the assurance that the public will be in the know when the President takes the necessary action on the indicted persons.”
