Mahama exposing corruption, Kufuor shielded it - Mornah

National Chairman of the People’s National Convention (PNC), Bernard Mornah has described President John Dramani Mahama as courageous in exposing corrupt practices in his three (3) years in government.

According to him, President Mahama’s administration is perceived to be corrupt because he has made his government transparent for institutions to come out with the wrongdoings and those involved in the act forced to face the full rigors of the law.

Speaking on a weekend political show on Radio Gold’s ‘Alhaji and Alhaji’, Bernard Mornah alluded that President Mahama's government is at least not same as Kufuor’s administration who shielded all the wrongdoings by his appointees in order not to give his administration a bad name.

“President Mahama has shown courage in dealing with corruption in his governance and many at times, when you allow the public to know the corruption in your government, the perception of corruption goes higher. He is at least not like the other government which will not expose corruption because it will affect their party,” he stated.

President Mahama as part of marking his three years in office and the last year of his first term, went on a retreat at Ho with his ministers, charging his appointees to prepare for the heavy schedule ahead.

“What we must do and what I am thinking must come out of here is to have an analysis of what our strengths are and what are weaknesses are and to also look at what our opportunities and what the threats are and once we do that we come up with a roadmap on how we can all work together to ensure that we win 2016.”
