The confidence of the people of Ghana is gradually fading away from the leaders of the country. The lot of the Ghanaian youth are of the belief that the government appointees and all other political office holders are in those offices only to enrich themselves from the public purse. That stems from the trends experienced in the history of Ghana where those who are found culpable of misappropriation of public funds walk freely with impunity.
In a discussion on net 2 TV's "The Attitude" in Friday 16th July 2021, Mr Kusi Boafo, the CEO of Public Sector Reforms has categorically stated that the number of reforms he is putting in place will check the activities of public office holders. He said this in reference to the launch of the Ghana.Gov launched by the vice president, and other digitization steps being taken by the NPP government. He said that public and political offices are not meant for wealth creation but a duty and responsibility call that should not give rise to the miserable life of the holders when their party is kicked out of power. He sighted himself as some who has a lot businesses to his name and therefore dies not need to steal from the government to make him rich. "I earn all my money honestly, I don't steal from the government to make me rich. I have my palm plantation, mushroom bread, and other things all in my name".
