Mahama never covered up corruption while in power- NDC replies NPP

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has rubbished claims that the party under former president John Mahama destroyed most of the good structures that were put in place by his predecessors.

According to the party, the positive track record of the NDC over the years, outnumber that of the governing NPP.

The party’s comment is a response to a press briefing by the General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), John Boadu, when he said former president John Mahama and the NDC had nothing new to offer after they almost halted the economy from a growth path of 14% to 3.4%.

However speaking to the media on Tuesday, April 9, 2019, the National Communication Officer of the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi, compared the records of both parties on education, corruption and infrastructural development.

He indicated that unlike the current NPP administration, the government of Mahama never covered up cases of corruption.

"Mahama, while in power did not act as a clearing agent or speak for anybody.He did not cover up corruption.He prosecuted his own and punished them,” he noted.
