General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr. John Boadu has labelled former President John Dramani Mahama’s recent corruption comment. as ‘laughable’.
Mr John Boadu said on NEAT FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’ that Mr. Mahama’s claims that the NPP will continue to loot if given another term beyond 2024 ‘make no sense.
According to him, Mr. Mahama has no locus to make those claims since ‘’ he did little to fight the canker during his tenure.”
“So, is he [John Mahama] telling us that you always have to steal when in power, or he steals and is thinking everyone else will steal?” he questioned
According to the former NDC’s flagbearer, keeping the NPP in office beyond 2024 means allowing them to keep all the booty they have looted from the national coffers.
“The NPP have no intention of fighting corruption and, so, the only way they can be made to account to the people of Ghana is for them to leave office so that the new government will come and audit them and show where they have gone wrong,” Mr. Mahama said during his Thank You tour of the Upper West Region, warning: “Otherwise, all the money they have stolen, they will just walk away with it.”
“The only way they could be accountable is for them to leave office so that the people of Ghana can ask them questions and audit them to make sure they account for the period they were in office”, Mr Mahama told a crowd during his tour.
But, Mr John Boadu maintained that the former president ‘is not fit to talk about corruption.”
“He must be mindful with his utterances and project himself as a former president.” He said
