Every Ghanaian should be aware of the damage that corruption causes to a country. Since funds amassed through bribes and the theft of public funds are typically deposited in the form of real estate, treasures, and savings, preferably in foreign banks, Ghana has been severely hit by chronic corruption, which has affected every infrastructure in the country under the current NPP government.
The majority of Ghanaians have been dealing with this issue under previous administrations, which has had a significant negative impact on the general populace. As a result, when Akufo Addo ran for president, the people of Ghana trusted and believed him when he said he would protect the public's money. Unfortunately, Akufo Addo did not come as promised to eradicate corruption in Ghana.
In addition to giving the appearance that he has failed as a leader, Nana Akufo Addo's refusal to arrest any NPP politician involved in corruption in the nation also suggests that his administration won't be able to fight corruption in the country. Who in their right mind would vote for the NPP in 2024 to bring about the continuation of corruption promotion?
There are several corrupt politicians, like as Kwasi Anin-Yeboah, Paul Adom-Otchere, Eugene Arhin, and Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, who ought to have served prison time in any respectable administration with an efficient judicial system. If you are a knowledgeable Ghanaian who cares about your country, you must act to make sure that anything similar never happens again since no foreign country can help Ghana fight corruption.
No one is denying that John Mahama misappropriated public funds, but what is clear is that he started several projects, including housing units, schools, and hospitals, and even abandoned some of them uncompleted. In contrast to the current administration, which went on a rampage of sod-cutting, there are no projects in sight, and the nation is mired in debt with no accountability.
Eugene Arhin, Paul Adom-Otchere, Kwasi Anin-Yeboah, Charles Bissue, and several other people, including the finance minister and the president, should all be probed and prosecuted to spend the rest of their lives in prison, yet they are all still working for the NPP government because of the lack of effective judiciary system in Ghana.
So why would a sensible individual depend on such a party for the advancement of the country? What can an intelligent Ghanaian expect from the NPP government if Ghanaians elect them in 2024 if they pledged to improve Ghana but instead have irreparably damaged the nation that was far better under the previous government?
You will be a foolish Ghanaian to hope that your country will improve under the NPP government, which has failed to follow in the footsteps of the developed world because they only want to serve themselves and amass wealth. All successful or developed countries in the world, including the United States of America, Britain, Australia, etc., jailed their corrupt politicians. They do not serve the general populace.
This is a comprehensive list of corruption made by Eugene Arhin, the president's director of communications, during the tenure of Akufo Addo

Conclusion: Fellow Ghanaians, the Belgian government can attest to the fact that I continue to criticize the government despite the best things it has done for me. Even though I'm just a normal worker in Belgium, my wife and I have our own house and car. I turned 65 this year and went on pension, but after three months at home, I noticed my gorgeous figure was gaining weight, so I returned to work.
I now work in a food factory and have regained my physique by losing three additional kilograms that I put on over the three months that I wasn't employed. Criticizing the Ghanaian administration does not imply that I despise Nana Akufo Addo or the NPP. I simply detest the political strategies used by the NPP administration of Ghana to collect riches and continue to deny the common people of Ghana better livelihoods, especially the systemic corruption it has fostered.
Despite my bad vision, (without eyeglasses, I can't read properly) the purpose of my writing is to improve prospects for the average person to have a better life, as in any real government, one shouldn't be a politician before living better.
This is one of the reasons why, in any modern nation, people of all economic levels can get by and don't experience wealth discrimination. No country in the entire globe will be successful if its corrupt officials are not imprisoned. The NPP government has specifically failed to achieve this since the president is in possession of the key to corruption.
Up until we later learned that it was the president, Nana Akufo Addo, who was restricting Martin Amidu to do his job the right way to prosecute corrupt Ghanaian politicians, Ghanaians, including this writer, attacked the former Special Prosecutor, and accused him of corruption and out of frustration, he resigned.
The same criticisms were made about the newly appointed Special Prosecutor, Kissi Agyebeng, and when Sir John's assets were finally taken after his will revealed his corrupt background, it was the same Akufo Addo who had ordered that the late corrupt politician's stolen property be returned to his family.
Why then, after six years in power, are Ghanaians still wasting their time and failing to notice anything noteworthy about this government? Therefore, I will urge Ghanaians to abandon tribalism and refrain from electing the NPP administration till such big criminals as Eugene Arhin, Paul Adom-Otchere, Kwasi Anin-Yeboah, and many more are thrown behind bars.
Without these people, including the so-called criminal journalist called Paul Adom-Otchere, going to prison, whether a Ghanaian needs a Ghanacard or not to vote, please don't go and stand in the scorching weather to cast your vote for any pointless political party. That will be the only thing that can guarantee the future of Ghana and Ghanaians.
