Communication Specialist, Raymond Ablorh, has stated that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has failed in the fight against corruption even though it set up of the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP).
According to him, the numerous corruption scandals that hit the Akufo-Addo government makes one wonder if it was the same New Patriotic Party that spoke with so much disdain against corruption in the erstwhile administration in the run-off to the 2016 election.
He said, “William Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo entered the 2016 presidential election conspicuously strong on the corruption card.
He’s sold as an incorruptible and no-nonsense corruption fighter even though he’d no tangible record of fighting corruption exceptionally in the John Kufuor’s corruption-ridden administration which, he’s part of first as an Attorney General and later a Foreign Affairs Minister.
…Today, people wonder if he’s the same man who campaigned against corruption in 2016.
Bees of corruption scandals have stung the face of his administration so badly that it’s simply impossible to identify them in barely four years. And, Nana Akufo-Addo’s mouth is terribly swollen that he can’t even mention corruption anymore,” he noted in an assessment of the NPP vis-à-vis corruption.”
The anti-corruption campaigner added that the refusal of the Akufo-Addo government to fight corruption in its government.
He reiterated that Akufo-Addo won the 2016 election by beating anti-corruption drums but now it has become a different situation altogether.
“At the recent launch of their 2020 Manifesto, the man who incessantly sung anti-corruption chorus in 2016 couldn’t string a simple sentence to tell how better he’s fought it successfully than his predecessors did. He’s absolutely nothing to show.”
He cited the lack of motivation by the government to prosecute the former president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) when he was caught on tape engaging in corrupt practices as one instant that proves his assertion.
From the day, Kwesi Nyantakyi, former GFA administrator was caught on tape telling how the President and some of his men could be bribed easily to give the entire of Ghana away to foreigners, Nana Akufo-Addo hasn’t proven Nyantakyi wrong in how he’s handled corruption cases that came up in his administration,” he said.
