Elections 2020: Akufo Addo is the most corrupt president in the history of Ghana – John Mahama states
John Mahama has officially fastened Nana Addo’s name to the most corrupt president in the history of Ghana’s tag. According to the former president, the corruption scandals which have been recorded under Nana Addo’s led NPP government stinks to the core and are also sickening at the same time.
The NDC’s bigwig also bragged that his worst score in the corruption fight is better than the best score of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
Let’s use the most scientific means of measuring corruption which is the transparency index– my worst score is better than Akufo-Addo’s best score. That is the most scientific basis. Otherwise, any other thing is hearsay.
The media has given him (Akufo-Addo) a free ticket on corruption. I think Ghanaians are now used to corruption under Akufo-Addo and so nothing is shocking anymore
The easiest way of fighting corruption is by investigating your opponents when you take power which takes no courage to do because they are not members of your party but when you are the President and the people in your party are engaged in corruption and you have the courage to investigate and prosecute them, that is when you are truly fighting the canker.
He also added that the NPP succeeded in painting him as a corrupt person to Ghanaians reason why lost the 2016’s presidential race.
Some of the corruption allegations against my administration were throw-factory with some saying I had hotels in Dubai, some also claiming I had ships at the Tokyo Habour and myself and Lordina diverting $100 million World Bank money into our Swiss bank account and all. At the time, we felt that Ghanaians should see through it and there was really no truth in it.”
So there are sometimes that perception of corruption created deliberately for political advantage and I suffered a lot from what the NPP did, and we didn’t respond appropriately.
He lamented during an appearance on GH ONE Tv.
