- John Mahama is entreating Nana Addo to be fair when dealing with corrupt officials
- The former president makes the case for the president to also punish corrupt government officials and not just NDC members
Ex-president, John Dramani Mahama, is making a case for president of the republic, Nana Akufo-Addo to also prosecute corrupt officials in his administration.
Nana Addo has made known his intentions of dragging all corrupt NDC officials for prosecution through the special prosecutor. Although the president made this promise months ago, the opposition NDC dared the president to pinpoint any such corrupt official.
This daring message by the opposition political parties resulted in the president warning that any attempt to prosecute corrupt officials should not be termed as a political witchhunt
During his formal address the 31st December event, Mahama made the point that corruption must be dealt with completely by holding both present and past government appointees accountable.
“It does not take courage, it does not take bravery to prosecute one’s political opponent. The true test in the fight against corruption is holding your own people accountable when they go wrong… We must not pursue post regime accountability, we must pursue accountability while your regime exists,” the former president stated.
