NDC Gov’t Is Too Corrupt To Fight Corruption—Sammy Awuku
Sammy Awuku, NPP Deputy Communications Director, has bemoaned recent happenings under President Mahama’s administration.
According to him, government is strangling poor people in the nation by the tariff increments.
A couple of weeks ago, the Public Utility Regulatory Commission announced new tariff adjustments.
Tariffs on electricity were increased by 78.9% while consumers are expected to pay 52% tariffs for their water supply. This new development has since posed a threat to Ghanaians who find it difficult to pay the new tariffs.
Speaking to Oman FM, Sammy Awuku was of the view that government’s inability to combat corruption has led to the economic crises confronting Ghanaians.
To him, since the inception of the NDC government under the leadership of President Mahama, there have not been any financial administrative laws to check corruption in the country.
Sammy Awuku asserted that, unlike the erstwhile Kufuor government which, according to him, made several interventions to improve the lives of Ghanaians, the incumbent government’s quest to end corruption has turned out to be nothing but just a total mirage.
“The government fighting corruption is a mirage and the government, itself, is involved in [a] lot of corrupt dealsI do not foresee how this government can fight corruption because the government, itself, is totally corrupt and the vehicle they travel on is the vehicle that always leads us to corruption,’ he stated; further urging Ghanaians to show the government the exit, come 2016.
‘Ghana must see change in 2016.’
Contributing to the panel discussion on the station, the Managing Editor of the Daily Searchlight, Ken Kuranchie, was also of the strong view that the Mahama government lacks foresight and has failed to initiate policies to save the economy.
He stated emphatically that the government “has lost the moral right. It has lost direction. In fact, it has not made any effort to fight corruption.’
