Former First Lady and flagbearer of the National Democratic Party in the 2016 elections, Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings is calling on President-elect Nana Akufo-Addo to prosecute of corrupt officials of the outgoing National Democratic Congress administration.
According Mrs Rawlings, the move will ensure proper accountability for acts perpetrated by persons put in charge of governance in the past 8 years.
At a press conference held in Accra on Wednesday, the former first lady and one-time presidential hopeful admonished the newly elected government not to relent in taking legal action against NDC officers that supervised “fishy deals”.
“Whilst the fourth republican democracy provided a combined human-centered liberal social development, our governance space was being occupied by looters of state coffers completely out of touch with the ordinary people” she noted.
She added that “The result of the 2016 polls is an expression of revulsion at heartless vulgar opulence displayed by government, the deprivation and impoverishment of the people”.
