The NPP presidential candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo has warned that his administration will not tolerate the culture where politics become a money making venture.
According to the former MP, an NPP government under his watch will ensure that the culture where people choose politics as money-making venture will be fought and defeated.
“Public office is no longer going to be the platform for the brazen theft of public funds. Public service is going to be just that, public service. I have said it before, and I will repeat it. Those who are coming into office, if we win, must understand that they are coming to give public service. Those who are coming there to make money must stay in the private sector,” he said.
He also reiterated his commitment to appointing an independent special prosecutor with a legislative mandate to deal with corruption, who will be appointed and empowered to tackle corruption.
Nana Addo said this at a fundraising dinner organized in London by the UK branch of the young executive forum of the NPP on Friday, June 10, 2016.
