Many believe corruption has been the bane and impediment to country's development since the adoption of a democratic system of government in Ghana. Despite the regular change of government through election, there seems to be no significant abstinence from corruption in the country.
The biggest opposition, NDC and some concerned citizens of Ghana have been avid critics of the NPP government in its second term. Issues of Agyapa deal and Mr. Domelovo been forcefully removed on the grounds of legal retirement age became a major topic in Ghana, and Ghanaians criticized the government of being corrupt and mafias.
Yesterday, speaking in a CNN interview, H.E Nana Akuffo Addo boasted of better performance as far as the fight against corruption in the country is concerned. He said his government is is more effective in the anti corruption fight, which he claims is reflected in Ghana’s growing position and rankings of corruption on the globe.
In response to Mr. Domelovo's removal, the president of Ghana said Mr. Domelovo removal from office was not a personal or autocratic decision, rather it was in conformity with the supreme law of the land, the constitution. There’s a time for retiring which is prescribed by statute, not my making. If you are 60 years old you are no longer supposed to be able to work in the public service…The Auditor-General, like me, should be some of the first to recognize the laws in our country,” he reiterated.
