If John Dramani Mahama is chosen president in 2024, his administration will look into how public funds were spent while the Akufo-Addo administration was in power.
This will include looking into the results of the Covid-19 Report and the findings from the Auditor-reports General’s over the years.
The moment has arrived, in Mr. Mahama’s opinion, for Ghanaians to demand proper accountability from the politicians they choose.
Only a new party in power will be able to accomplish this responsibility, he claimed.
“We must clean the Augean stables and rid them of the filth and corruption. The anti-corruption [agencies] will be given unfettered space to do their work. The days of the infamous ‘clearing agent’ will be well and truly over,” Adding that “but to guarantee efficiency and professionalism at this effort, institutions of state would be enabled to be autonomous in their work,” Mr. said at the beginning of his campaign in the Volta Region today, Thursday, 2 March 2023.
State-owned businesses will not be a source of income for political appointees, Mr. Mahama said, noting his position as president.
The hallmark of his previous government, tolerance for critique, and the establishment of an environment that allows the media to carry out its duties without being concerned about threats, harassment, or potential murder, were things he promised to bring back.
When his party’s followers demanded that the next NDC administration punish the NPP as well, Mr. Mahama responded, “I daresay, there is no use battling for political power, if all it does is repeat the errors of the NPP administration that have led our dear country to this sorry condition.
Therefore, in order to create the Ghana we envision, we must involve the general public.
