My next government will defeat corruption – Mahama

The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, has assured that the next NDC government will wage a relentless war on corruption in Ghana and defeat the canker.

Addressing the Christian Ecumenical Council on Monday, May 20, Mr. Mahama emphasized that his next government will make corruption in the country unattractive by being ruthless on persons who engage in corrupt activities.

He indicated that persons in his administration who also engage in corruption will not be spared.

“I make a firm promise to you my Christian fathers that the administration that I will lead will set a new standard in the fight against corruption. We will fight the canker of corruption and defeat it. We will retrieve stolen monies, and hold people in government accountable.

“We are not only going to pursue regime accountability. The norm has been that it is only the past government that you hold accountable for acts of corruption. We will ensure that those in our government who also indulge in corruption will be held accountable. So we will not go witch-hunting the past government if people have been in malfeasance they must be held to account and if people in our administration also follow the same path they must be held to account. It is only that way we will be able to get a hand on the cancer of corruption.”
