Akufo-Addo has done little to fight corruption – Asiedu Nketia
The General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia believes President Nana Akufo-Addo and the governing New Patriotic Party have done little to fight corruption despite several claims and promises of fighting the canker if voted into power.
According to Asiedu Nketia, the President’s failure to admit the existence of corruption in his government is a clear indication that he does not even recognize the problem and hence cannot be counted upon to address it.
Addressing the media on Tuesday at the party’s National headquarters, Asiedu Nketia insisted that the President has failed to recognize the root cause of corruption in the country.
“If you don’t know the problem, how can you solve it? So those of you who are counting on him and hoping that one day he will get up and fight corruption, your hopes will be dashed, ” he iterated.
Mr. Asiedu Nketia further argued that the Mahama led administration cannot accept blame for the numerous corruption scandals that has plagued the governing party.
He noted “his claim that the uncountable number of corrupt deals and practices that have come to light since he assumed office is the handiwork of the opposition is another example of a leader who is totally out of sync with the aspirations and concerns of the people he governs”.
“President Akufo-Addo must accept full responsibility, for the enviable accolade he has gained as the most corrupt president in Ghana’s history which hangs around his neck, and find out why it is so,” he added.
