Appointees of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) are beginning to show signs of corruption, Reverend Professor Emmanuel Martey, has said.
According to the immediate past Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, the manner in which government has handled recent events has "proven" that certain appointees are engaging in corrupt practices.
Rev. Prof Martey made these statements while delivering a public lecture on the theme, "Institutional Corruption in Ghana: Causes and Effects", at the Christian Service University College (CSUC) in Kumasi.
The former Presby moderator lamented government's inability to tackle corruption head-on, while calling on President Akufo-Addo to do more against the canker.
He was speaking in relation to recent happenings at the Microfinance and Small Loans Centre (MASLOC), where ex-deputy CEO Mustapha Abubakar alleged that current boss, Afia Akoto, procured "1,800 vehicles of 2011 models to give it out to people".
Touching on the subject and how government has gone about it so far, Rev Prof Martey said: “A large government means large corruption. So we should have a constitutional direction. NPP and corruption, I said clearly that what has been proven, the NPP appointees have begun showing signs of corruption."
Some persons who took loans from MASLOG but have refused to pay back, have seen their cars confiscated, with over 350 vehicles already impounded.
