The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has described President Akufo-Addo as the “most corrupt” leader in the country’s history.
Addressing journalists on Tuesday, September 10, 2019 General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, said the NPP government has made corruption a way of life.
According to him, the President “must accept full responsibility for the unenviable accolade as the most corrupt President in Ghana’s history, which hangs around his neck and find out why it is so.
“It has been established beyond all reasonable doubt that corruption is a way of life for the President and his government,” Mr. Nketia said.
The NDC General Secretary believes President Akufo-Addo is “not in touch with the realities”, adding that the ruling government has become a laughing stock due to the avalanche of evidence of corruption.
“He also made the astonishing claim that he has investigated every allegation of corruption and that he was not the infamous ‘Clearing Agent’ that Ghanaians have known him to be.
“We wish to call on the President to jolt himself back to reality and face the truth, which is that the Ghanaian public has lost all faith in him to do anything about the mountain of corruption under which his government has been buried,” he added.
Mr. Nketia was responding to President Akufo-Addo’s declaration that neither him nor any member of his government is corrupt.
