The Chief Executive Officer of the defunct [email protected] Secretariat, Dr. Charles Wereko-Brobbey, said his outfit incurred no financial loss to the State because they ?observed due process in all transactions,” stressing that the late President John Atta Mills should be the one to blame for the huge [email protected] judgement debts.

He was speaking at the Public Accounts Committee of Parliament hearing on Wednesday.?According to?Dr. Wereko-Brobbey, popularly known as Tarzan, the non-operational secretariat cannot be blamed for some judgment debts that have plagued the country. He said the blame should be laid at the door steps of late President John Evans Atta Mills.

?The Auditor General simply didn?t understand the relationship between the Secretariat and the Office of the President,? Tarzan told the fact-finding committee. ?We observed due process in all our transactions.?

He added: ?The records are at the confidential registry of the Office of the President. Every pesewa and cedi spent was subject to the programme approved by the National Planning Committee.?

Dr. Wereko-Brobbey said they made some ?surplus? in the organization of the 50th anniversary of Ghana although they are not a profit making organisation.

?The [email protected] made a surplus. Any notion or allegations that we made losses are totally unsubstantiated. At the appropriate time the Committee can talk about the issue of over expenditure,? Tarzan said.

He said Ghana is still benefitting from most of the decisions and projects undertaken by the [email protected] Secretariat.?

?The vehicles at the VVIP lounge are from the [email protected] fleet including the presidential fleet. The buses the soldiers at the Castle use are all from [email protected]… The AU villages at Cantonments and Ridge are probably the finest gated community in this country. I haven?t seen any better and I am yet to see any better,? he stated.
