Former President John Dramani Mahama has slammed President Akufo-Addo for failing to combat corruption throughout his six-year tenure in office.
Mr Mahama told supporters of his party on Monday, May 15 that President Akufo-Addo has failed in his fight against corruption.
For him, the 5th President of the Fourth Republic no longer makes ‘corruption’ his pep topic in his public utterances.
“[This is] because corruption has defeated him hands down.”
Mr Mahama was speaking at the University of Development Studies (UDS) in Tamale, Northern Region a day after he was overwhelmingly re-elected Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
The former President polled a whopping 98.9 percent to beat Kojo Bonsu and Dr Kwabena Duffuor, who withdrew his candidature a day before the polls.
Mr Mahama said his fight against corruption will see him look further into the Professor Kwabena Frimpong-Boateng report on the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining (IMCIM) if elected in 2024.
He said the report of the respected heart surgeon has opened a can of worms.
The potential four-time Presidential Candidate of the NDC suspects the current government will sweep the report under the carpet as Mr Akufo-Addo usually does.
He called him a “clearing agent”.
“We shall pursue this matter further and make sure justice is done,” he stressed on the IMCIM report penned on Friday, March 19, 2021.
