Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) cried over the worst condition of Ghana. He stated that the first gentleman of the land, Nana Akufo-Addo didn’t even consider corruption as a major problem. According to him, Nana Akufo-Addo made corruption an easy job. He justifies his statement by highlighting various corruption scandals recently occurred.
“His [President Akufo-Addo’s] failure to admit the existence of corruption in his government is a very clear indication that he does not even recognize the problem and cannot be counted upon to address it. Because 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.”
Nketia demanded that President Akufo-Addo should take full responsibility for rising corruption cases. He stated that NPP doesn’t make any progress.
“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.”
