Devote 30% of your time to fight graft – Rawlings to Akufo-Addo

Rawlings NewFormer President Jerry John Rawlings

Ex-president Jerry John Rawlings has charged President Nana Akufo-Addo to allocate a significant amount of time in office in dealing with corruption.

Mr Rawlings, a staunch anti-corruption campaigner, said: “We are very fortunate also that somebody like Nana Akufo-Addo has emerged over here. I respect him for certain principles, values and I will continue to pray and hope that he stays the track and will devote at least 30% of his time to fight corruption and corruptible tendencies.”

He made these comments after a group of actors and actresses paid a courtesy call on him recently.

For him, corruption had been the bane of development in Ghana and strong-willed leaders were needed to take strong decisions to curb the canker.
