What Is The Best Way President Akufo-Addo Can Fight And End High-Level Corruption In Ghana?
LISTEN OCT 23, 2020

How can high-level-corruption be ended in Ghana? As a Ghanaian media professional, it has always been my firm conviction that our homeland Ghana can be safely described as a work-in-progress-nation, which also happens to be one of the most attractive countries, to live in, in all of sub-Saharan Africa. Ghanaians are smart enough, to end the nation-wrecking phenomenon, of thieves-in-high-places. Definitely. Cool.

Today, despite the existential threat posed by COVID-19, we still remain an aspirational and hardworking African people. Brilliant./

And, although one loathes his political party, the New Patriotic Party (NPP), one freely acknowledges that we are incredibly lucky, and blessed, to have an elected leader, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, who is cast in the mold of the great President Nkrumah.

President Akufo-Addo is a bold, farsighted, courageous and incorruptible leader. No question. Yet, even with him as Ghana's leader, amazingly, the nation-wrecking-phenomenom, of thieves-in-high-places, still persists. Monstrous. Abominable. Unpardonable. Who born dog, koraaaaaa, I ask? Haaba.

Clearly, in his second term as President, the more responsible sections of the Ghanaian media must demand, and ensure, that within his first one hundred days of being sworn in for his second term, President Akufo-Addo (who is easily the next best elected-leader, after President Nkrumah), sends a bill to Parliament, to be passed into law, under a certificate of urgency, giving Ghana's Auditor-General's prosecutorial powers. It is the only way President Akufo-Addo can fight and end high-level corruption in our homeland Ghana, ooooo, Ghanafuo. Yooooooo...
