President John Dramani Mahama has challenged Ghanaians to name persons in his cabinet who are supposedly corrupt so he can sanction them. The President argues that his government has chalked some successes in the fight against corruption and must be given credit for that. He said it is worrying to find people accuse his ministers of being corrupt without showing any proof. President Mahama was addressing the Ghanaian community in the United Kingdom on Friday when he made the comment. The President is currently in the UK for an anti-corruption conference.
He said “all the time people keep saying that your ministers are thieves. Then I ask them, which one? Tell me so I can sanction them. Then their response will be, put your ears down, are you not listening?” President Mahama also reiterated that the fight against corruption should be a collective responsibility on the part of every single Ghanaian.
The president met with the Ghanaian diaspora in the UK on the sidelines of the just ended anti-corruption summit in London.
