A Deputy Campaign Manager for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Mustapha Abdul Hamid says the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has shown more commitment in the fight against corruption.
Speaking on Face to Face on Citi TV, Dr. Mustapha Hamid said the NPP government has channelled more resources into empowering anti-graft institutions to effectively execute their duties.
“The kinds of budgetary allocations that our government has made to these anti-corruption institutions are in three or four-folds what other governments have done. First of all, most of these anti-corruption institutions have complained about a lack of resources and supplying them with tools to work is a huge step in empowering them to do their work,” he added.
But this claim by Dr. Hamid has been contested.
Some Civil Society Organisations in the country took on the President for directing the Auditor-General, Daniel Domelevo to proceed on an extended for over 150 days.
The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama, on August 20, 2020, also challenged the track record of President Akufo-Addo in the fight against corruption.
According to Mr. Mahama, President Akufo-Addo has failed woefully in the fight against corruption.
Responding to such criticisms, Dr. Hamid said, “I am not sure that if people are due for their leave period, and they are asked to proceed on leave, it is a dint on the fight against corruption. This has nothing to do with pushing back on corruption.”
