Netherlands’ Ambassador to Ghana, Ron Strikker has asked the government of Ghana to pursue a policy of “Ghana beyond corruption.”

He said this in reaction to the government’s policy of a ‘Ghana beyond aid.’

The administration of Nana Akufo-Addo announced the policy as an objective towards achieving self-reliance for the country.

The policy has since caused controversy with many saying that it is ambiguous. A document on the policy was subsequently launched on May Day 2019.

Sharing his thoughts on the policy, Mr. Strikker said it asked the government to channel its energy to weeding out corruption.

“…your official policy is Ghana beyond aid; why not Ghana beyond corruption,” he asked in a TV3 viral video.

The diplomat said, “you need a good business climate to attract foreign investment…”

He added that “corruption is a very bad thing” and companies suffer and will stay away if they think that they are going to be harassed by corruption in a certain country…”
