“Nana Addo Cannot Compare Himself To John Mahama’s Anti-Corruption Record”-Afriyie Ankrah
The Director of Elections for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Elvis Afriyie Ankrah has contended that the President of Ghana, Nana Addo-Dankwa Akufo Addo comes nowhere near John Dramani Mahama in the fight against corruption in the country, adding that the former cannot handle the massive corruption scandal under his administration as President.
He claimed that the NPP government’s unwillingness to prosecute corruption cases demonstrates its lack of commitment to eradicating the canker. He further stated that the President has exhibited a lack of desire to combat corruption, even among his appointees.
In the fight against corruption, Afriyie believes Mahama has a better track record than Nana Addo.
This comes shortly comes after the General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party(NPP), John Boadu took a swipe at the lead-member of the NDC. John Dramani Mahama, saying that he also failed to manage corruption under his administration as President.
“Former President Mahama asserts without proof that the NPP has stolen Ghana’s money and that, he can ensure accountability through elections… Is that the same Mahama whose government signed onto a half-baked contract of $1.2 billion for the Ghana Retail Payments Systems Infrastructure? Sibton Switch Systems Ltd has just lost an arbitration demand for $478 million from Ghana for revoking that agreement. The Akufo-Addo administration did a far more enhanced project for only $4.5 million,” he said.
