Corruption might send President Akufo-Addo and NPP into opposition (Opinion)

In the run up to the 2016 elections, President Nana Akuffo Addo and the New Patriotic Party urged Ghanaians to vote against John Dramani Mahama and the then ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Their main campaign message was that, there was massive corruption on-going at the time. They sighted instances where the amount of money the country was loosing through corruption could be used to implement the Free Senior High school project.

However, the last thirty (30) of Nana Akuffo Addo's tenure is suggesting that, the New Patriotic Party has failed Ghanaians as far as corruption fight is concerned.

Martin Amidu, the Citizen Vigilante, who was appointed as a Special Prosecutor to fight corruption has resigned over interference by President Nana Akuffo Addo.

News trickling in indicate that, the Chief Executive Officer of the National Lottery Authority (NLA) has been cited in a corruption expose by Joy News. The renowned media house aired a documentary on the sole-sourcing project embarked Kofi Osei Ameyaw, the Chief Executive Officer of the NLA.

In documentary, the National Lottery Authority (NLA) Chief inflated price of the lotto selling machines he procured for the gaming outfit.

The recent turn of events has given John Dramani Mahama and National Democratic Congress (NDC) some sort of advantage. It looks like Nana Akuffo Addo has lost the fight against corruption.

Statistically, neither ruling New Patriotic Party nor the opposition National Democratic Congress can boast of fifty percent (50%) support of Ghanaians. They both have about 40-45% loyal sympathisers.

There are about 10-15% Ghanaians who normally vote base on issues and policies. These people are likely to vote against New Patriotic Party (NPP) as the President's appointees have failed woefully in the corruption test.
