Mahama’s corruption fight a sham - Akufo-Addo

President John Mahama’s fight against corruption in the country is nothing but a sham, that’s according to the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party Nana Akufo-Addo.

In his view, the president has not been honest with Ghanaians in the battle against the canker.

Delivering his ‘real state of the nation address’ Monday, the NPP flagbearer made reference to outstanding corruption cases under the Mahama-led administration such as the controversial bus rebranding saga, the SADA scandal and the unclaimed GHC51 Woyome judgment debt to buttress his point.

“The many outstanding corrupt cases have not been dealt with and the President claims he is fighting corruption. The Woyome saga, the bus rebranding, AMERI and all of them, what has become of them…The so called fight against corruption is a sham, I repeat; it’s a sham” he stated.

The former Attorney General also lambasted the NDC government for taking credit for fixing the energy crisis, saying it is shameful for one to take credit for fixing a problem they created.

"The President wants credit for resolving DUMSOR. How can you expect credit for resolving a problem you caused? And at a high cost?

"The four years of DUMSOR have cumulatively led to financial losses of more than $3 Billion, and thousands of lost jobs," he stated.
