A top official of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) who was a former metropolitan chief executive of Accra, Nii Adjiri Blankson, has revealed that a Nana administration will ensure that "all NDC government officials implicated in large-scale corruption scandals will be brought to book".
Addressing reporters at the Nima residence of Nana Akufo-Addo, the former Metropolitan Chief Executive of Accra, states that " we will take legal action against former government officials who will be implicated in corruption and those found to have misappropriated funds,” elated Adjiri Blankson asserted."
According to him, the NPP is fully aware of ministers who flown out after casting their ballots for fear that the NDC might lose the elections.
“We know ministers and senior government appointees who traveled abroad because they were not sure of the outcome of the elections. But, they should know that we shall come after them wherever they may be,” he added.
Akufo-Addo, who was contesting his third straight presidential election, secured 5,716,026 votes, representing 53.85 percent, to beat Mahama, who managed 4,713,277 votes, which represented 44.40 per cent.
The Progressive People’s (PPP) Candidate, Papa Kwesi Nduom, had 105,682 votes ( 1%). The Conventions Peoples Congress (CPP) candidate, Ivor Greenstreet, got 25,395 (0.24%). Nana Konadu Rawlings of the National Democratic Party (NDP) had 16,878 (0.16%). Independent Candidate Jacob Osei Yeboah also secured 15,879 votes.
Losing the 2008 and 2012 elections compelled Akufo-Addo to make painful concession calls to Prof. Evans John Atta Mills and Mr John Mahama respectively.
