Former Member of Parliament (MP) for the Nanton Constituency in the Northern Region, Ibrahim Murtala Mohammed wants appointees within the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) to shut up and listen to the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) when issues of corruption are raised in the country, MyNewsGh.com can report.
He indicates that the NPP has no moral justification to comment on issues pertaining to corruption because the party is neck-deep in corrupt acts making the National Democratic Congress (NDC) the only incorruptible party and giving them the right to speak to such issues.
In his view, some appointees under the current administration have immersed themselves in corruption such that they can be perfect examples of public prosecutions yet have the guts to accuse former NDC appointees of being corrupt a claim he said has not been grounded by evidence.
“You can’t talk about corruption in this country any longer. The NPP should shut up because they can’t talk about corruption but we can talk about corruption. They are not only engaging in corruption but thievery”, he told Tamale-based Radio Tamale.
According to the Former Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry, some appointees under the current administration are perfect candidates for prosecution if President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is indeed committed to his promise of fighting graft and protecting the public purse as stated during his investiture.
The promise on corruption fight he stressed, was one of the biggest lies in the fourth republican constitution under which a government peddled and maligned people without basis because they believed a section of Ghanaians were gullible and challenging them to provide any scintilla of corruption under the previous administration.
“They have not been able to provide a scintilla of evidence supporting all preposterous and outrageous allegations they made against President Mahama and his appointees”, he said adding that a discredited Martin Amidu now Prosecutor gave NPP the impetus to think the previous administration was corruption.
“Martin Amidu knew he was not lying and did not have any evidence to back his claims”, he concluded
