Mr. Asiedu Nketia, the General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), says that corruption in Ghana is on the rise; because; the institutions that are supposed to hold the government accountable and to check the system have all been silenced.
Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketia; popularly known as Genera Mosquito explained that, “Today, it is like every other power is neutralized and the executive power is strengthened. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. So, if a certain Executive is in place and they have broken other smaller powers that can hold them accountable and they do whatever they like, are you surprised that corruption is on the rise in the country? This is because the bodies that will hold the executive accountable have been crippled".
Speaking on Okay FM’s morning program 'Ade Akye Abia', General Mosquito said; that all the religious Institutions and other agencies in the country; that used to criticize the governments, when the country is going in the wrong direction; so as to strengthen our democracy have all gone silent; making it difficult to eliminate corruption in the country.
Mr. Asiedu Nketia said; the ruling government is to be blamed for the current silence in the country; adding that, he (Asiedu Nketia) feared that, the Executive Arm of Government will continue to have a its way if such intimidations continue in the country.
