The leader of the NDC, John Dramani Mahama, has attacked the purported corruption in the current administration while touring the Volta area.
He highlighted the belief that the NPP’s internal corruption makes it difficult for them to fight corruption.
If elected, Mahama promised to combat corruption, calling for responsibility and warning party members against misbehavior in positions of power.
“Now, corruption has broken loose and if it was in the IGP’s custody, it has broken the jail and is running all over the country. It’s obvious that the NPP has no desire or the ability to check corruption because their own people are involved in the corruption, and they cannot deal with it.
“So I have said if they [the NPP] can’t deal with it when we come, we will deal with it for them. When the NDC comes, we will hold those who have misconducted themselves accountable. But I must also caution our own people that those of us who go into positions of authority if you also abuse your trust, I am not going to come and defend you.
“We are a listening party, and we believe that power is given to a political party or to leaders to come and serve us. We are not seeking power just to be arrogant and opulent in our attitude. We are seeking power because we want to solve the rightful needs of our people,” he said.
Meanwhile, Mahama has promised Ghanaians that if elected president, he will do away with the one percent Electronic Levy (E-levy).
He reiterated that the levy was a burden while speaking at the University of Ghana’s 75th New Year’s school event.
“This is an inequitable tax, it’s not fair and prevents people from the uptake of moving towards a cashless society and so when NDC comes we would remove that tax,” he said.
