General Secretary of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia has described as woefully pathetic, the Akufo-Addo led NPP government’s commitment to the fight against bribery and corruption in the country.
According to him, the recent Corruption Perception Index (CPI) report, has shredded into pieces President Akufo-Addo’s much-acclaimed incorruptible tag, making him the country’s worst leader in the fight against the menace.
Speaking on Okay FM’s “Ade Akye Abia” Morning Show, the NDC Chief Scribe touted ex-President John Dramani Mahama’s record in the fight against corruption describing it as the best among all five Presidents under the 4th Republic.
“….ex-President Mahama is closely followed by the late President Atta Mills and the rest follow in that order…President Mahama’s record is outstanding in the fight against corruption; it is the best of all as compared to all the Presidents’ performance including President Akufo-Addo in the 4th Republic. President Mahama takes lead,”.
Mr. Asiedu Nketia believed it will bode well for the NPP and the country for that matter, should the government humbly acknowledge its inaptitude and helplessness in dealing with corruption so the NDC can proffer solutions to deal with the canker.
“…the government has failed woefully in the fight against corruption. All the incorruptible accolades heaped Nana Addo has turned out to be a sham…Everybody knows the corruption records in the country but my worry is that the same people who held a particular set of statistics on the corruption perception index that we (NDC) were corrupt yesterday are giving a different interpretation to the same figures the next day. This shows their vain posture,” he slammed.
