- Government says it has uncovered some massive rot of corruption across various state agencies
- Nana Addo says plans are underway to punish all corrupt officials in or out of public office
President of the republic, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo, has revealed government's resolve to prosecute all corrupt officials at the various state agencies.
According to the president, several audits of state institutions reveal that Ghana's ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) are ridden with bouts of corrupt practices.
Speaking at the book launch titled "Making Africa Work" and authored by the former Nigerian president, Olusegun Obasanjo, Greg Mills and Dickie Davies, the president revealed that the depth of the rot that has almost become the character of the way we treat public resources and the way we perform our public duties and deliver public services.
The comments by the president comes in the wake of the special prosecutor bill facing massive opposition in parliament - a development which has caused it to be withdrawn.
But even as the president makes known this very indication, it remains unclear which particular set of institution or ministry could be faced with such prosecution charges as many political analysts say the whip could be cracked on past ministers and heads of agencies under the erstwhile Mahama administration.
