- Nii Armah Namoale, a former MP, has urged President Akufo-Addo to prosecute former NDC officials, if they are guilty of corruption
- According to Nii Amasa Namoale, President Akufo Addo used the corruption tag just for the purpose of winning the 2016 elections
- He says the current government is struggling to prosecute ‘corrupt’ officials for lack of evidence
Defeated Member of Parliament for La Dade Kotopon, Nii Amasah Namoale has taken a swipe at the government.
Mr. Namoale who made public his presidential ambition recently has dared the government to go ahead with the prosecution of NDC officials if they have evidence.
Speaking on TV3’s ‘After Hours Show, the former La Dade Kotopon MP averred that the current NPP government led by Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo rode on the back of corruption to paint the NDC black in the eyes of Ghanaians.
According to him, the NPP, then in opposition used corruption as their main propaganda message to deceive Ghanaians to vote for them.
Now in government, Nii Amasah said the NPP has still not been able to prosecute any NDC official because they have no case.
“They promised Ghanaians that they were going to take legal action against corrupt NDC officials; why have they still not done that as per their promise?” he quizzed.
“It is because it was mere propaganda and as it has turned out, they have no such evidence,” Amsah Namoale stated.
He further pointed fingers at the government as corrupt for introducing the new digital address system.
“They rather want to dupe Ghanaians with their introduction of the very expensive Ghana Digital Address System.”
“That is plainly a ‘419 scam’ to deceive Ghanaians because they are in power,” he accused.
