Founder and Leader of the National Democratic Party (NDP) Nana Kondau Agyemang-Rawlings says the level of corruption in the country is akin to visiting violence on Ghanaians.
“It is not when somebody even attacks you or fights you that is equal to violence,” she opines.
“Violence is when you have violated us. When we have given you our mandate to run a country efficiently and effectively and you are able to disrupt the lives of Ghanaians.”
The former First Lady contends that the mantra of the current government – Changing Lives – holds only in the negative sense.
“You can tell us you are changing our lives,” she said.
“Yes, indeed you are changing our lives but not for the better.”
Mrs Rawlings made these remarks during the Greater Accra Regional Congress of the NDP in Accra.
Executives called for massive support for victory in the 2016 elections.
Nana Konadu urged opinion leaders and intellectuals to speak up against the ills in the country before things deteriorate.
