The Nana Addo government is the most corrupt in the history of the Fourth Republic, a former Director of the Ghana Integrity Initiative, Vitus Azeem, has said.
According to him, Ghanaians were deceived into thinking that President Akufo-Addo was an incorruptible man.
He said the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has so far failed to back its “no corruption” stance which was much touted.

Mr. Azeem, therefore, believes the Nana Addo government has been the worst in the fight against corruption when it comes to the Fourth Republic.
“…with every chain of a new government it seems to worsen, and you can see it with this present government. It was not as bad as it was under Kufuor, it was not as bad as it was under Atta Mills and Rawlings…especially this 2019. The things that are coming out are very unfortunate and should not be happening,” he bemoaned.
The Akufo-Addo administration has not been without scandals since assuming office, with several cases of alleged corruption being levelled against some of his appointees.
While a few have ended up being removed from their posts, the majority have been ignored as lacking merit.
Mr. Azeem said the President has really let the masses down with his dull approach to tackling corruption.
“…now people are touting the government that it’s one-day one-scandal, not one village one dam. So you begin to wonder, what is it that we have gotten wrong; why is this happening…,” the anti-corruption campaigner added.
