The General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia says President Akufo-Addo lost his grip on corruption by his own deeds.
President Akufo-Addo has said he’s aware of the orchestrations by his political opponents to hang the tag of corruption on his neck and that of his government despite all the efforts to arrest the menace.
“I am aware of the orchestrated attempts by my opponents to hang the tag of corruption on the necks of my government and myself, despite all the manifest efforts being made to deal with the phenomenon of corruption”, he noted in his address at the 2019 Ghana Bar Association Conference in Takoradi in the Western Region.
Mr Asiedu Nketiah popularly called General Mosquito in a rebuttal told Kasapa Fm that it’s pointless for the President to accuse opposition of masterminding the dent on his image with regards to corruption.
“Nobody is behind anything; infact he’s earned the title himself by his deeds, and not NDC causing this. He’s compromised some of the state institutions and always cover up corruption scandals by his appointees,” he told host Kweku Owusu Adjei on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa 102.5 Fm.
The NPP government has been inundated with a number of alleged corruption scandals since 2017.
A number of them include, the Ameri deal, GHc15m contaminated fuel scandal at BOST, contracts for sale saga at the Public Procurement Authority and the Commonwealth Visa scandal.
