Leader and founder of All People’s Party (APC), Hassan Ayariga has said that the first day he will be sworn in as President of Ghana, he will go to jail.
According to the APC presidential candidate, he will spend a night in jail as a sign of his willingness to fight corruption in the country. His idea of spending one night in jail if he becomes president is to show that anybody corrupt will not have it easy under his administration.
He made this revelation during Minority Political Parties Debate held at the University of Professional Studies, Legon.
“I will go to jail the first day I become President. I am going to sit in the cell, this is to show that anybody corrupt will not have it easy under my office,” he said.
Mr Ayariga stated that corruption has become attractive because there are no punitive measures to ensure that culprits are held accountable for their actions.
“It’s attractive because we don’t punish them and because we hail people who are corrupt,” he said.
According to him, his system of government will include a “National Database System” that will provide detailed information on all Ghanaians.
He furthered the system will help to identified all corrupt officials and prosecute them easily.
“Where you work, your fingerprints, the amount of money you earn, the number of houses you have, the kind of cars you drive, we will link it to know how you have acquired the property you have,” he added.
