Former President John Dramani Mahama has averred that President Nana Akufo-Addo has failed in the fight against corruption.
Mr. Dramani Mahama stated that the country is facing major challenges and that greed must be avoided in order to foster development.
He was reacting to the infractions captured in in the 2021 Auditor General’s Report.
“The NPP government has completely lost control of the fight against corruption. President Akufo-Addo in his inaugural address promised to protect the purse. Today, that public purse cannot be found. Revelations in the Auditor General report for 2021 are only a microcosm of the seeming institutionalization of corruption under this administration.”
He was speaking at the grand durbar to mark the climax of the Asogli Yam Festival in Ho over the weekend.
“I am using this festival to draw attention to this important national issue that requires the support of all citizens. Economic difficulties in the country are unbearable. Cost of living has increased significantly because of rising inflation. Prices are changing in the market every day, and this makes it difficult for the ordinary Ghanaian to survive.”
