An amount of GH¢400,000 was allocated to the Dagbon State for the preparation of 2019 Damba Festival.

GH¢500,000 for three years, totalling GH¢1.5million was allocated to the 20th Anniversary of Okyenhene for the environment and greening.

Also, GH¢300,000 was allotted for the organisation of 20th Anniversary celebrations of Okyenhene.

The Ghana Journalists Association was allotted GH¢50,000.

Ghana Boxing Association; $30,000

GH¢120,000 was allocated to the First Lady’s foundation, known as Rebecca Foundation.

And the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) was allocated some GH¢550,000.


The revelation has since generated controversy, with many people raising concerns of conflict of interest and frivolous spending.

Auditor General, Daniel Domelevo told Joy FM’s Super Morning Show Tuesday that he won’t accept such money.

Especially for EOCO, he said, since the GNPC Board Chair is under investigation.

The Chamber of Petroleum Consumers (COPEC) Ghana has called on the government to immediately halt and investigate the process; describing the spending by GNPC as wanton.
