-NPP Ashanti Regional Chairman says NDC members in state institutions are the cause of scandals during Akufo Addo government
- He's urged President Akufo Addo to sack all NDC members at post in state institutions
Ashanti Regional Chair of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr. Bernard Antwi-Boasiako, has blamed members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) who are still "at post" in state controlled institutions for recent scandals rocking the current administration.
The first few months of the current government administration saw many heads of state controlled institution heads resign or get dismissed from their respective offices. Some were removed from office due to being perceived as corrupt, although some members of the public have hinted at partisanship being the primary reason.
This said, some NDC members have undoubtedly remained in their respective positions in state owned institutions regardless of the political change, even though this may not be for long if the firebrand NPP Ashanti Regional Chairman has anything to do with it.
