“The office of the unique Prosecutor is his [President Akufo-Addo's] personal child and yet, he has tied the fingers of the special Prosecutor. we all know Mr. Amidu is a completely vociferous legal professional and i'm sure that if his arms had been freed to genuinely check out these instances, he could have gotten some prosecutions by means of now”, Mahama, the NDC flagbearer, instructed tv XYZ on Sunday August 23.
Mahama noted that the silence of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo with reference to corruption all through the incumbent birthday party’s manifesto release indicates strongly that the Akufo-Addo administration has misplaced the fight against corruption.
“I’m not surprised due to the fact they [NPP] have truely misplaced the combat against corruption. This president isn't always willing to fight corruption. And every person knows that while you fight corruption, corruption fights back at you and relying on who you are in his [Akufo-Addo’s] administration, you could do anything you need and break out with it,” he said.
“due to the fact he will [Akufo-Addo] in my opinion clean you and say that nothing at all has happened. I mentioned the opposite day that there may be a long list of cases of corruption and he has no longer made everybody look at it. My point is that when you fight corruption you need to do it so that it will become a deterrent, so that others will not have interaction in it and so obviously they've misplaced the combat”.
the former President stated categorically that the confidence Ghanaians reposed inside the Akufo-Addo authorities to combat corruption has weakened. He expressed his unhappiness within the remedy meted out to the Auditor-preferred, Daniel Yao Domelevo, whom he defined as someone who's very “lively”.
“take a look at what has came about to Domelevo. Domelevo is visible as an active Auditor -fashionable who has taken on quite a few high profile issues, it's miles a constitutional body and it is supposed to be independent of government just so the occupant can do his job properly.
"lamentably, this president who's a lawyer and need to recognise the charter than I has asked the Auditor-preferred to move on depart. it's miles the same as asking the EC Commissioner to move on leave or the leader Justice to move on go away”, Mahama determined.
“when you’re on go away and they alternate the lock to your workplace, it method there is no aim that you are coming back, so obviously this authorities has lost the fight in opposition to corruption”, he said
