Vitus Azeem, the Executive Director of the Ghana Integrity Initiative (GII) said in his statement that the possibility of a single person fighting against corruption is not acceptable. He added, President John Mahama has to take some serious action on this issue and find the people who are behind all this corruption.
On Friday President John Mahama asked the Minister of Justice and the Minister of Finance and the Attorney General to recover all the money that have been paid wrongfully to Waterville and Isofoton and prosecute as mentioned by the GYEEDA, GRA/Subah reports.
However, Mr. Azeem said that apart from bringing directives into action against corruption, President John Mahama has to take some serious action on the people involved in the corruption as mention in the reports and by the courts.
He added, there is no any serious action been taken against the officers who are responsible for all this especially in the Isofoton judgement debt, the Waterville which has already mentioned before but still we haven’t seen any action against them.
Mr. Azeem said, ’The GYEEDA case has been transferred to the AG some few months back but up till now we have not seen any progress from them.
Mr. Azeem told Eyewitness News in an interview, what President John Mahama is saying in his statements, we appreciate but only words cannot solve problems; we need some serious work done in the field before we will expect some results, our progress is still in the first gear and we have to increase our speed to stop crime and corruption otherwise it will be too late.
He said, President John Mahama should make a plan for his ministers and state agencies to fight against crime and corruption cancer.
He added, President should change some one or two ministers or top officials so that others can wake up and perform their duties well.
He ends his interview with this statement that if some government workers are involved in corruption then a hearing should take place against them to know the truth.
