Corruption Has Been Institutionalized Under Akufo-Addo – Mahama



Former President John Dramani Mahama has taken on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for what he says is the seeming institutionalization of corruption currently in Ghana.

Mr Mahama cited the 2021 Auditor-General’s report as evidence of how the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government has lost the fight against corruption.

“The NPP government has completely lost control of the fight against corruption,” he said at this year’s Te Zã (Yam Festival) of the Asogli State over the weekend.

“President Akufo-Addo in his inaugural address promised to protect the purse. Today, that public purse cannot be found.

“Revelations in the Auditor General report for 2021 are only a microcosm of the seeming institutionalization of corruption under this administration.”

The 2021 Auditor-General’s report saw about GH¢17.4 billion lost by the state to various financial irregularities in public sector institutions.

For the former president, it is only necessary for all citizens to come together in finding a lasting solution to this as the ordinary Ghanaian is suffocating under the current economic conditions.

“I am using this festival to draw attention to this important national issue that requires the support of all citizens.

“Economic difficulties in the country are unbearable. Cost of living has increased significantly because of rising inflation. Prices are changing in the market every day, and this makes it difficult for the ordinary Ghanaian to survive.”
