-He made the call while addressing participants of the NDC'S Unity Walk in Cape Coast
Former President John Mahama has charged President Nana Akufo-Addo to hold someone accountable for the recently launched GhanaPostGPS, which he describes as a blunder by the government.
According to him, the GhanaPostGPS app was nothing but a rip off as it was "freely available on our mobile phones" and the President must "take firm action" to retrieve the amount spent on it if he is really bent on tackling corruption as he is been preaching.
"When you talk about accountability, this is where the president must show seriousness about corruption. Somebody must account for 15 million Ghana cedis given away free of charge", he stated.
For him, though new governments, all over the world, are often given honeymoon periods to roll out their policies which could have some mistakes, the blunders of the Akufo-Addo-led government are too many to gloss over but the President is not acting boldly to correct them.
Addressing the National Democratic Congress(NDC) Unity Walk in Cape Coast in the Central Region on Sunday, Mr Mahama cited the launch of the Ghana Post GPS App as one of the many mistakes so far.
"How can you launch a Google GPS system that is freely available on our mobile phones and say it is a national addressing system?,” he asked, adding, “It is such a pity. Why do you embarrass the President so much? You go and bring a whole president and bring him to launch a system that is essentially a 419".
He reiterated his call for accountability over the Digital Addressing System stressing that “tackle corruption, you must take firm action against your own people.”
