GH₵21 Million School Feeding cash stuck in NPP Chairman’s account
There is confusion over delayed payment of monies for caterers of
the School Feeding Program in the Central region. The monies which
are made through mobile money (Momo) accounts are said to have
been released but allegedly stashed in the account of the
New Patriotic Party (NPP) Central Regional chairman, Robert Kingsford Kutin.
A member of the Central Regional Security Council and NADMO Director,
Joe Donkor claims one Khadidja Anderson told them about the presence of
the money in the chairman’s account at a meeting held at the Regional Secretariat.
Speaking in an interview on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem, Mr Donkor said
there was a recorded tape of Madam Khadija to that effect. He said an amount
totaling about GH₵21 Million was in the said account in Chairman Kutin’s name.
However, Madam Khadija, a staff of the Central Regional Secretariat of the
Ghana School Feeding Program who also spoke in the same interview
fought off the claims.

According to her, the tape has been doctored to tarnish her image
as she bemoaned why someone will record her at such a meeting.
She added that the payments have been delayed due to the absence
of a momo merchant account to be used to hold the money for the
transfer to the caterers. Another reason for the delay, she said, was
due to invalid details provided by some of the caterers.
