The minority leader in Parliament, Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu has showered praise on persons he has described as fierce anti-corruption campaigners worthy of recognition.
Mr. Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu derided President Mahama’s administrations’ commitment in the fight against corruption saying it is nothing to write home about. The “corruption, wastage and maladministration” is overwhelming he added.
He mentioned the names of citizen vigilante and former Attorney General, Martin Amidu, Investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, pressure groups Occupy Ghana, Let My Vote Count Alliance amongst others as having been very active in fighting corruption than the government.
He indicated that the several corruption scandals under this administration has severely dented the country’s image, calling on well-meaning Ghanaians to vote out the NDC and give the mandate to Nana Akufo Addo, flagbearer of the NPP, who has publicly declared he is “not corrupt.”
Mr. Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu went on further to say “the minority in parliament has unveiled the cases of SADA, Subah, GYEEDA, the sale and purchase of Merchant Bank, the high cost of the construction of the Ridge Hospital and other road construction projects, the AMERI saga, the Karpower saga, the Kumasi Airport refurbishment, the National Service Scheme saga, STX, the purchase of the Embraya planes, the CDB loan saga…etc and now the rebranding saga of the Metro Mass buses at a cost of GHC 31,000 per bus.”
“Simply put the nation is being fleeced, and the nation is bleeding under President Mahama.”
He was speaking at the NPP’s extraordinary delegates congress in Sunyani where the party outdoored its campaign team for the 2016 elections and strategy for the elections next year.
