In exactly four days, Ghanaians would go to the polls to elect a leader for the country for the next four years.
The various flagbearers are saying all they can to convince their electorates to garner votes in their favour.
The fight to end corruption by both the New Patriotic Party, NPP and the National Democratic Congress, NDC, is an unending fight which has not been won by any.
The NDC flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama says the corruption under the Akufo-Addo-led government is so big that it has grown wings and is now flying.
According to Mahama, corruption under Akufo-Addo has become so normal that it is no longer news for government appointees to be involved in scandals.
In a report filed by Pulse.com, he said despite the consistent tagging of his administration as corrupt, none of the appointees in his administration were ever convicted or charged with the vice.
Mahama also accused Akufo-Addo of deliberating shielding and refusing to prosecute his appointees who were caught up in corruption scandals like the Agyapa deal and PDS scandal.
“... if you look at this government, for the last four years, it is the President’s political appointees, presidential staffers, this galamsey issue, presidential staffers and minister were mentioned," he said.
Mahama also mentioned that in the PDS scandal, the president’s relatives were mentioned but nothing was done to them.
Meanwhile, former president John Mahama has said if Ghanaians give him a second chance at the presidency, he will deliver since he has done it before.
According to him, he is definitely not a daydreamer like others think he is but rather he is a builder with a vision for Ghana and the best possible team to help him deliver his mission.
Mahama made this known while answering a question from a lady on his HardTalk series about whether or not his promises were mere dreams.
