Former president Jerry John Rawlings has leveled fresh accusations at the Akuffo Addo led government administration and said that it has re-institutionalized corruption.
According to Ghana's revolutionary former Head of State, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration is re-institutionalized corruption in its one year tenure in office under the pretense of running a pro-capitalist property-owning democracy.
Speaking to patrons at the 36th anniversary ceremony of the 31st December Revolution held in Ho, Volta Region, former president Rawlings indicated that should the situation persist, it will lead to a spike in corruption in Ghana.
"Under the guise of a capitalist property-owning democracy we have gradually re-institutionalized corruption and allowed a select few to monopolize resources”, he stated.

The former head of state expressed that he expects the President to reports of "inflated budgetary allocations by a particular ministry," an obvious reference to the recent scandal surrounding the Special Development Ministry's highly criticized budget.
“For those who have today turned the clock of progress around and allowed kalabule to confidently walk back into the soul of the country, history has to be re-told... Their arrogance and indifference has almost brought the country to its knees," former President Jerry John Rawlings stated.
