Former New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Asikuma-Odoben-Brakwa constituency and anti-corruption campaigner, P.C Appiah-Ofori has expressed dissatisfaction with the efforts of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in the fight against corruption.
According to him, corrupt officers have not been punished enough in the country.
He stated that persons who are dismissed for corruption must be prosecuted to deter others.
“As far as I am concern the way he made us believe that Ghana was going to be prosperous under his administration with the fight against corruption; He made that promise and we are in the 6th year but not much has been seen” he said.
He told Alfred Ocansey on 3FM Sunrise Morning Show that “we seem serious about the fight against corruption, that’s why the OSP has been established but whereby the OSP is not resourced and empowered to prosecute then it is problematic.
“If people engage in corrupt practices and they are not prosecuted it becomes the benefit of all those who are interested in it but when there is prosecution it sends a signal to frightened those who want to engage in corrupt practices.”
Mr Appiah Ofori appealed to all Ghanaians to help fight corruption because Ghana has no future if corruption is not curbed. Ghana needs money and if we allow few people to steal the country’s money, the older people will leave and the future generation will suffer, he noted.
