Speaking during an interview on Woezor Tv, John Dramani Mahama indicated that the current President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo is not willing to fight corruption in his Government.
John Dramani Mahama explained that, depending on who you are in Nana Akufo Addo’s Government, you can do whatever you like and get away with it because, he will personally clear you and say that nothing untoward has happened.
The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress also further added that, the Special Prosecutor’s office is President Nana Akufo Addo’s own baby and yet he has tied the hands of the special Prosecutor, Mr. Martin Amidu.
During the interview, John Dramani Mahama said;
This President is not willing to fight corruption and depending on who you are in his administration, you can do whatever you like and get away with it because, he will personally clear you and say that nothing untoward has happened.
I mentioned the other day that there is a long list of cases of corruption and yet he has not made anybody investigate it. The Special Prosecutor is his own baby and yet he has tied the hands of the special Prosecutor.
Mr. Amidu is a very vesiferous Lawyer and am sure that if his hands were freed, to really investigate this cases, he would have gotten some prosecutions by now.
When you fight corruption, you need to do well so it becomes a deterrent so that others will not engage in it.
Look at what have happened to Dormelevo is seen as a very energetic Auditor General who has taken on very high profiled issues.
Unfortunately, this President who is a lawyer, and must know the law better than I has asked the Auditor General to go on Leave. It is the same as asking the Electoral Commissioner to go on leave or asking the chief Justice to go on leave. That’s the import of what he has done.
Why he did that is because Dormelevo was investigating a person close to him, the Senior Minister in the Crow and Associates matter and there was time to go back to the courts so we noticed that he had an accumulated leave so let him go on Leave. And he goes on leave and and they changed the locks to his office.
