According to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Hon. Kennedy Ohene Agyepong, Ghanaians are naturally born bad and as corrupt people.
“Our attitude and mindset as Ghanaians …..every time they are thinking of duping somebody”, the outspoken and controversial lawmaker observed.
He disclosed that every system that supposed to check corruption in the country has broken down paving way for politicians, civil servants as well as individuals to cheat one another.
“Instead of thinking of development for our nation, we are thinking of making ourselves rich at the expense of the poor”, the politician cum businessman spoke on GHOne State of Affairs political program hosted by Nana Aba Anamoah.
“When we talk of corruption it not only the politician taking money from the government coffers. ..it is also about the civil servants who cook the figures. An item that cost ten he agrees to make it hundred so he is also take part of it”, Hon. Kennedy Agyapong, anti-corruption crusader pointed out.
He alleged former National Democratic Congress (NDC) officials looted state funds and have used them to acquire properties in Dubai and other countries.
“Now the safe haven is Dubai. I know all the NDC people with properties in Dubai. Although I’m against corruption, I don’t find a problem with a Ghanaian who has stolen and invest here in Ghana than those who steal and go and keep it in US, Europe and Dubai or wherever,” the maverick politician said.
