The Ghana’s Corruption Perception Index (CPI) for 2019 has indicated Nana Akufo-Addo led the country into a record high of 41% from 48% which keeps showing how his government is faring.
According to the Founder of the Diaspora Progressive Movement, DPM based in USA, Dr. Lawrence Appiah the NPP government scored 41%, the lowest in the history of Ghana. “I can point out at least two things that will send NPP back to opposition: Galamsey and Corruption his actions encourages, both fights, Nana Addo has woefully failed”, he alleged.
Dr. Appiah charged President Akufo-Addo to immediately reduce the size of his government, with about 125 Ministers and at his age, with a ‘useless’ monitoring ministry.
DPM Founder further called Nana Addo to learn from President John Dramani Mahama and stop being the clearing-agent for his corrupt ministers and refer all those he had cleared to the Special Prosecutor, SP for prosecution.
“…..Nana Addo for once, should take charge of his government and abolish the committee formed to investigate the fall of the cedi, it is a complete waste of time and resources”, the statement opined.
Nana Addo should take immediate steps to transform our economy from a taxation to a production one, as they promised Ghanaians, he said.
Dr. Appiah charged Nana Addo to sack and punish all his appointees who have prevented the Special Prosecutor, SP and Auditor General from doing their work.
Nana Addo should publicly throw his unqualified support for the Auditor General to do his work well.
If Nana Addo really wants to fight corruption, he should resource the Office of the S.P with personnel, money and authority, DPM Founder, Dr Appiah laments. “….fellow Ghanaians, I have taken my time to give Nana Addo these free advice because I want him to start it so it will be easy for the next NDC government in 2021”, Dr. Lawrence Appiah stated.
He alleged when Nana Addo took over, the corruption index at 48% within just three years, it is now at 41, ” please don’t vote for Nana Addo for him to do more by getting us to 20%, he added. Dr. Appiah posited that Nana Akufo-Addo had already brought the image of Ghana too low in the international community.
