The NPP-led administration has been condemned by some political detractors who say the government is ridden in deep-rooted levels of corruption.
This, Jerry Rawlings fiercely refutes. According to him, the fight against corruption in Ghana can best be attained through a bi-partisan approach.
“By the time this administration came into office, the country was literally drowning in the practice of corruption with impunity. This administration has, therefore, inherited national corruption at its worst,” Mr. Rawlings stated in a forum in Sierra Leone.
The issue of corruption has always been on the agenda of the former president as he has been heard over and over again jabbing the erstwhile Mahama administration for their non-response to issues of state-inspired corruption.
This development has even seen the former president recuse himself from joining the campaign of the opposition NDC in the lead up to the 2016 elections.
