The running mate for NDC flagbearer John Mahama for the 2024 election, Prof Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang says corrupt government officials under this New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration will be prosecuted.

According to her, the move to prosecute officials who found themselves in any form of embezzlement is hinged on the principle of accountability.

Addressing the rank and file of the NDC and other dignitaries during her outdooring as running mate to former President John Mahama, the former Minister for Education prosecuting government officials is not a threat but rather a promise.  

“Across the political divide, across social and professional groupings, among the youth, you hear of complaints and stories concerning state capture, where this government has chosen to use its power not in the broader interest of all Ghanaians but to favor a small clique. What is that?

“John and I have agreed, that whoever has participated in the plunder of the state must be held accountable. This is not a threat; it is a promise, premised on the wishes of our citizens across the various political and social divides, and hinged on the principle of accountability,” Prof Opoku-Agyemang stated.

Meanwhile, the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Fifi Fiavi Kwetey has stated that corruption under the President Akufo-Addo administration is choking the nation to the maximum level.

Mr. Kwetey speaking at the same event disclosed that Ghana has morally collapsed for nearly 8-years now under this current administration.  

“The country is in a state of collapse, not in the physical form, the real collapse of our country is a moral collapse we have seen nearly 8 years. The state of this beautiful country is at an all-time low. The suffering Ghanaians are looking to breathe again.

“People of Ghana cannot breathe. The level of pain, the suffering, the hardship, the lies, the dishonesty, corruption is choking Ghana to the maximum level,” the General secretary stated.
