Founder of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Jerry John Rawlings has argued that corruption in the party began under former president Mills.
“All I can do is speak up. I find myself in a situation where I have moral responsibility and no executive authority. I would have wished that my moral authority could have the same influence. But that is not the case, corruption has infiltrated our institutions and their leaders so badly today that they use some kind of lens to demonstrate that you can keep your moral authority, but this is executive power at work,” he lamented.
Meanwhile, the recent Corruption Perception Index (CPI) by anti-graft agency Transparency International revealed that Ghana improved slightly in the fight against corruption in the sub-region.
