Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress, Sammy Gyamfi has indicated that the former President, John Dramani Mahama will not be an agent for clearing corruption.
According to Sammy Gyamfi, unlike President Akufo-Addo who is the ‘chief clearing agent’, John Mahama has a record of punishing his own appointees who were found culpable of offences and will continue to live up to that standard.
Addressing the weekly NDC Press briefing in Accra, Sammy Gyamfi accused the Akufo-Addo led administration of shielding officials found culpable in the infamous PDS scandal, ‘Bostgate’ scandal as well as other corruption incidences which have occurred under this current government.
“The next NDC Mahama administration shall ensure the arrest and criminal prosecution of all persons who directly or indirectly played roles in this stinking PDS scam and the other several corruption scandals we have witnessed under the watch of President Akufo-Addo in the last three and half years.
“As President Mahama demonstrated between 2012 and 2016, when he ensured the prosecution of his own appointees and party members in the YEA who were found culpable in some corruption scandals, President Mahama will not be a clearing agent of corruption in the next NDC government,” Sammy Gyamfi indicated.
According to Sammy Gyamfi, the “likes of Vice-President Dr. Bawumia, the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta and the Eson-Benjamin-led MiDA who aided and facilitated this scam which has occasioned the nation huge financial losses, have not been held to account for the roles they individually and jointly played in the scam.”
He assured Ghanaians that the next NDC-Mahama government will ensure the retrieval of all monies illegally obtained by PDS back to Ghanaians.
