Surveys Conducted None Showed That Corruption Was Presently Uttermost On The Minds Of Ghanaians
Mustapha Abdul-Hamid, Minister of Inner City and Zongo Development, on Friday said corruption was not dominant on the minds of Ghanaians in light of the fact that the blister has no strong connection with the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government’s structure.
Mr Hamid said in all the surveys conducted by reputable research and democratic institutions such as the Ghana Center for Democratic Governance, Political Science Department of the University of Ghana, none of them showed that corruption was presently uttermost on the minds of Ghanaians.
“Corruption is either not presences or is on the barest minimal,” the surveys which uncovered issues that are highest in the public space, he said.
Mr Hamid, who is additionally the Deputy Campaign Manager of NPP, offered these remarks at a Press Briefing in Accra to further expose claims made by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) sponsored by a video film allegedly showing President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo allegedly receiving a pay off of $40,000.
He said the way that corruption was a significant issue for Ghanaians in 2016 was on the grounds that the subject was dominant in the governance framework.
“Individuals don’t consider corruption to be a dominant issue in the current year’s election on the grounds that their monies are being utilized to construct interchanges, finance the Free Senior High School strategy, give credits, free water, power appropriations, fabricate great streets at less expense, among others,” he said.
He said not at all like the past government, the Nana Akufo-Addo-drove government had been harder on corruption by effectively prosecuting 55 blamed persons and convicted a few.
