Nana Akomea, a prominent New Patriotic Party (NPP) member, defended President Nana Akufo-Addo’s statement about the battle against corruption in Ghana.
He believes that the administration has done a good job containing the threat.
Since Ghana gained independence, President Akufo-Addo said that his administration has taken the most audacious measures to combat the threat.
The President claimed that his administration has taken efforts to enhance the nation’s anti-corruption institutions, including the passing of the Right to Information Bill, in remarks made at the Ghana Bar Association’s Annual Bar Conference in Cape Coast.
However, his detractors are unimpressed with the struggle thus far. They have asked President Akufo-Addo to act on his words by punishing his officials who have been proven guilty.
The battle against corruption, according to Nana Akomea, is a team effort.
According to him, Ghana would defeat corruption if all anti-corruption organizations work together.
“I’m pleased he said his record in the fight of corruption is open for scrutiny. Petition the presidency or anti-corruption agencies if you think otherwise.
“Let’s not leave the fight of corruption to one person. The President is just one person. There are many anti-corruption agencies like CHRAJ, Audit Service, the Police, CID and others. The President can only provide the tools for effective work,” he said on Accra-based Peace FM.
