"He [Akufo-Addo] has supervised corruption, he has benefitted from corruption and does not deserve a second term. He has failed Ghanaians and must be shown the way out,” Asamoah-Siaw stated.

According to the PPP running mate, Akufo-Addo in the space of four years drastically metamorphosed from corruption fighter to enforcer, leading to the destruction of the Ghanaian economy as the country’s debt stock balloons.

Ghana’s debt stock reached an all-time high in September following the government of Ghana’s unabated borrowing to shore up the shortfalls in revenues as well as fund rising expenditures.

The public debt stock stood at GH¢273.8 billion in September this year, the highest since the Bank of Ghana began publishing data on the country’s indebtedness.

According to the central bank, the figures are equivalent to 71 per cent of total output, measured by gross domestic product (GDP) which means the Akufo-Addo administration added GH¢71.9 billion to the debt stock within a 12-month period.

Martin Amidu’s resignation as the special prosecutor earlier this month blemished President Akufo-Addo’s record in fighting corruption.

Amidu’s sudden abdication of his post quelled any belief in the ability of Akufo-Addo to stand up against corrupt figures in his government.

The PPP said it was extremely worried the Akufo-Addo led administration had been paralyzed by corruption scandals, many of which had been swept under the carpet.

The party, Yen.com.gh earlier reported vowed to push the 2020 elections into a run off. The NDC and NPP are the forerunners.
