THU, 20 JUN 2024 LISTEN

Flagbearer of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, has pledged to take a firm stand against corruption if elected as President in the upcoming 7 December polls.

Speaking at the Christian Service University's (CSU) 50th Anniversary public lecture in Kumasi, on the theme "Sustainability of Democracy in Africa: The Ghanaian Experience," the former president made it clear that he would not act as a “clearing agent” in the fight against corruption.

Mr. Mahama emphasised that individuals who have looted state resources would face prosecution and imprisonment.

According to him, there will be no sacred cows; anyone found guilty of corruption will face the full force of the law.

He also emphasised his commitment to empowering anti-corruption institutions to operate without political interference, promising to ensure greater transparency in government operations.

Mr. Mahama added that the country’s anti-corruption institutions will have the independence they need to function effectively, and his government, will maintain an open and transparent government if the NDC wins the polls.

Which team do you think has the higher chance of winning the 2024 elections?
