Renowned entrepreneur, Dr. Kofi Amoah, has stated that death penalty should be introduced for persons found guilty of corruption.

According to him, although the suggestion seems harsh, it will serve as a deterrent to others since the festering canker has eaten too much into the Ghanaian society.

Speaking on Joy FM, Dr. Kofi Amoah said, “If you go into public office and steal money, we must eliminate you like the Chinese do.”

He added, “I’m sorry but that’s how I feel… we must give it a strong serious attention.”

"Anybody who is going to take the critical ingredient for our forward movement, for the progress of our nation, to get to the shining city on the hill, the future of Ghana, if they are going to take it from our mouths for their own personal gain, we must eliminate them," he said.

Dr. Kofi Amoah believes any Ghanaian who goes to borrow or beg for money and diverts part of that for their personal benefit must not be allowed to live when found out.

"I know a lot of you will not agree with me, but that is my position," he stressed.

“Ghana has no economy” since “we have to keep borrowing to pay our debt.” He described the borrowing spree as a “Ponzi scheme,” he added.

Dr. Amoah said there is hope for the economy only if the government focuses on building confidence in its own people.

“Ghana can become a bread basket of Africa instead of this hopeless basket case we are going around borrowing with,” he stated.
