John Mahama Once Again ‘Reports’ Akufo-Addo Over Issues Relating To Corruption

Issues regarding corruption have been dominant in Africa. Many African governments have been tagged as corrupt by their own people as a result of conditions pertaining in those countries. In an interview in Uganda, former President John Mahama shared insights into corruption in Africa. Samson Kasumba, the host of NBS’ ‘Face Off’ had questioned John Mahama about issues about corruption and noted that Ghana has been impressive when it comes to tackling corruption.

According to John Mahama Ghana has institutions and laws but then political will is also important. He spoke about the creation of the Special Prosecutor’s Office, CHRAJ, EOCO and other offices that deal with corruption. He noted that despite the desire to create an office to fight corruption, Akufo-Addo has done little to sustain the SP office. He explained that there has been more corruption under the current government even with the Special Prosecutor.

He averred that there is no political will from President Akufo-Addo to fight corruption and this is what makes it difficult to fight it. He opined that without the political will, institutions and laws will not be enough because those accused will be shielded by political offices. Interestingly, the host felt Ghana was a leading example of a country with lower levels of corruption, John Mahama explained that corruption was all over the country because of the refusal of the president to fight corruption. Earlier this year, John Mahama made similar accusations to the Hungarian embassy in Ghana.
