Akufo-Addo won 2016 polls on corruption –Atik Mohammed
Campaigns on corruption about the erstwhile John Dramani Mahama administration is what won President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo the 2016 polls, suspended General Secretary of the Peoples National Convention (PNC), Atik Mohammed has stated.
According to him on Accra-based Peace Fm monitored by MyNewsGh.com, the Mahama administration appeared sloppy in the fight against corruption which was capitalized on by the then opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) to win the last general elections.
“Akufo-Addo won the 2016 polls based on his campaign for corruption because the Mahama administration was perceived to be corrupt. Ghanaians voted for him because they wanted a change but if his administration is worse off than the previous one then there was no point”, he told host Kwami Sefa Kayi.
The former PNC leader expressed disappointment that out of the many corruption allegations no single individual has been thrown into the cooler to show the commitment of the Akufo-Addo led administration in the fight against graft.
Then candidate Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in 2014 stated categorically that enriching himself and family has never be his reason for being in politics.
In spite of his two failed attempts at the presidency at the time, he explained he was given it a third shot because he has dreamt about what the country’s destination ought to be, and wanted to take Ghanaians to that promised land.
