“NPP Gov’t Practicing Create, Loot And Keep” – Okudzeto Ablakwa

Member of Parliament for North Tongu Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has accused the ruling New Patriotic Party NPP of practicing “Create Loot and Keep”.

He says the levels of corruption in the Akufo-Addo led administration is unprecedented in the history of Ghana.

He said the NPP while in opposition accused the erstwhile National Democratic Congress (NDC) administration of practicing “create, loot and share” only to assume power to do worse.

“Under this government we are seeing massive create, loot and keep not even create loot and share. This government, they create loot keep” he said.

“No… They accused us (the NDC) of create, loot and share”, he said, adding after being reminded of the NDC’s own record with regards to corruption that “’No, We didn’t engage in this level of recklessness”.

The “Create, Loot and Share” phrase was first coined by Justice Jones Dotse, one of the nine-member Supreme Court panel who heard the Woyome Waterville scandal in 2013.

Justice Dotse described the €40million judgment debt paid to Waterville Holdings Ltd and the GHS51.2million paid to businessman, Alfred Agbesi Woyome, as a carefully orchestrated plan by some individuals, companies and lawyers, who he tagged as a “brigade” formed to loot the country.

Justice Dotse stated that Mr Woyome and Waterville appeared to have “entered into an alliance to create, loot and share the resources of this country as if a brigade had been set up for such an enterprise.
