The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress Johnson Asiedu Nketia has reacted to the GetFund scandal.
A report by the Auditor General has revealed how politicians have been abusing the GetFund, an educational fund meant to give out scholarships to the brilliant but needy in Ghana.
Politicians like the Minister of Education, Mathew Opoku Prempeh and MP for Dome Kwabenya, Hon. Adwoa Safo have been named amongst the politicians who have benefited from the fund meant for the needy.
The son of Asiedu Nketia, the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress is also a beneficiary of the GetFund.
Reacting to the scandal on Adom Fm’s ‘Dwaso Nsem’, Asiedu Nketia said his son was a needy when he applied for the GetFund scholarship.
