Ablakwa Drops Details Of Gabby Otchere-Darko's Involvement In Shady GH¢187M West Blue Deal

There is a grand scheme led by President Nana Akufo-Addo's cousin, Gabby Otchere-Darko, to illegally draw GH¢187,356,969.55 from state coffers, according to lawmaker Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa.

Titling his revelation "Kitchen Scandal" in reference to the alleged involvement of Akufo-Addo's entire "kitchen cabinet ministers," Ablakwa says the payment concerns a deal between the government and West Blue Ltd.

Ablakwa asserted that Gabby Otchere-Darko is putting pressure on Ministry of Finance employees to give one of his clients a payment of GHS187.3 million.

The lawmaker detailed how the President’s cousin is heavily implicated in an unethical behavior that may cost the state GHS187,356,969.55 in his most recent publication, “Kitchen Scandal.”
