Akufo-Addo Has Failed To Tackle Corruption- Asiedu Nketia
General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has chided President Akufo-Addo for bad governance.
According to him, corruption has been increasing over the decades but the Akufo Addo government tops the list as the administration with the worst cases of corruption scandals.
“….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 interpretat .
He also dismissed the NPP’s suggestion that the NDC had not embarked on major road projects while in power, saying “the Akufo-Addo government has forgotten that the beach road has been done.
