Former Chairman of the Public Interest and Accountability Committee (PIAC), Dr. Steve Manteaw, has described both the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) as “thieves”.
Speaking on Adom FM in Accra, Dr. Manteaw said the two main political parties in Ghana have created a loot and share system to milk the country of its resources.
“… the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) only come to power to use their intelligence to create, loot, and share from the country's coffers,” he fumed.
Speaking on corruption in Ghana, Dr. Manteaw said the NPP has disappointed in it’s fight against corruption.
According to him, the government has not done enough to fight the canker in the country.
"This government has not really inspired confidence in the fight against corruption. We have not seen any serious commitment to tackle it," he said in an interview on Adom FM.
The expert on revenue management also accused President Akufo-Addo of doing little to save the public purse.
Dr. Manteaw also told Myjoyonline.com in April 2020, that the government could have adequately mitigated against the drastic economic hardship in Ghana by cutting down on the number of its appointees.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Minority Leader of Parliament Haruna Iddrisu has said, a future government of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) will not respect the Agyapa deal.
Iddrisu, at a press conference, monitored by YEN.com.gh on Tuesday, September 1, 2020, said the decision of the finance minister to endorse the transaction is in clear violation of article 181 (5) of the Constitution.
"... which requires that side documents, together with the agreements, be laid before Parliament, and, as we speak, we did not have any documentation defining the terms and conditions and the prospectus to guide a decision on this matter," he quoted the Constitution.
