Akufo-Addo lacks capacity to fight corruption because he sits on it at presidency - Anyidoho

Deputy General Secretary of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho says he does not think President Akufo-Addo has the capacity to fight corruption.

The aspiring general secretary told Kwame Tutu on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm the president has not shown leadership in the fight against corruption. The President has not proven to us that, he has the capacity to fight corruption, he added.

According to him, the corruption under Nana Addo has gone through the roofs and due to that, his ministers are resigning from their jobs. He stressed that the president doesn't have the capacity to fight corruption and he has failed the country.

"And I hope that Ghanaians cannot wait to vote him out in 2020," he said. He was optimistic the NPP would be voted out in 2020 because the corruption is unprecedented.

He was emphatic corruption is at the seat of government hence the inability of Nana Addo to fight it.

When asked what he was expecting to see to convince him of the zeal of the president to fight corruption, he said, the over bloated appointees under him is a mark of corruption and so, looking at Nana Addo's number of appointees, I will say I am convinced he is not ready to fight corruption and in 2020, Ghanaians will vote him out
