The Member of Parliament for Bawku Central, Mahama Ayariga says state institutions mandated to fight corruption are all powerless under President Akufo-Addo’s administration.

Speaking on GHOne TV, the Bawku Central lawmaker stated that he has lost confidence in almost all the government’s anti-corruption agencies in the country.

“To be frank with you I have lost confidence in almost all the anti-corruption agencies because I have gone to almost all of them with cases and as I sit none of them has received traction. If you will recall, the Bank of Ghana building and all the price adjustments that took place without any proper explanations.

“You know I took it to the Office of the Special Prosecutor, even a few months ago. I have to still remind the Special Prosecutor that I have this matter in your office under investigation, but as we speak I haven’t heard anything.

“I know if I get up and take this matter and run to EOCO I doubt anybody will listen to me. Because we live in a country, under a government that has immobilized any institution involved in fighting corruption,” Mr. Ayariga.

He continued: “So you take up the cases and you go there and after a while, they come out with some very interesting decision that just negate the initiatives that citizens have taken to fight corruption. The person who is principally responsible for fighting corruption has decided that he is not interested in fighting corruption.”
