In an interview with Nana Yaa Kyeretwie parliamentary reporter, the MP,
he stated categorically that it would have been the biggest opportunity for government to account for any money given to them to combat the spread of COVID-19. In other for the ordinary Ghanaians to have trust in them to know taxes paid are used judiciously.
