“If we combine all the corruption perception indices from Mahama’s era to Akufo-Addo’s in the 4th Republic, you would realise that President Mahama’s government has no coequal; yet they keep hammering in local media that the NDC government is corrupt," he said.
He went ahead to highlight the incidence of recent scandals that hit the energy sector and Public Procurement Agencies as classical examples of government officials causing financial loss to the state.
“Today we are seeing several classes of corruption. What is happening today can be referred to as ‘state capture’ because individuals are capturing the state institutions meant to serve the public and Ghanaians as a whole to serve the needs of the private individuals,” Asiedu Nketia lamented.
