The PPP has charged President Mahama to move away from speechmaking and combat corruption.
The Progressive People’s Party said President John Mahama must move away from speechmaking and deal with corruption “decisively”.
The PPP has described President Mahama’s efforts towards fighting corruption in the country as “a false notion to score cheap political points”.
The Party’s chairman Nii Allotey Brew-Hammond at a press conference stated that measures President Mahama claims to have put in place will not amount to much because “many of our past leaders have shown a certain talkative posture similar to President Mahama’s when it comes to the issue corruption.
“We say it is mere rhetoric because all their talk to fight corruption have only proven to be cosmetic posture said only to score cheap political points on the false notion that they are or were doing something about it”, he said.
He added that “Many of our past leaders have shown a certain talkative posture similar to President Mahama’s when it comes to the issue of corruption. We say it’s mere rhetoric because all their talk to fight corruption have only proven to be cosmetic posture, perhaps, said only to score cheap political points on the false notion that they are / were doing something about it.
“In other words, these leaders could not match their public posturing on corruption with the same level of urgency, zeal and determination that are required to actually fight corruption.
“We therefore remind the President that in giving those assurances to fight corruption, he needed to remember that he needs to go beyond satisfying the letter of a constitutional requirement to go to Parliament.
He must also meet the expectation of the people of Ghana to obey both the spiritual order of the very Bible on which he swore the Oath of Office as President and the spirit of the Constitution to which he also swore to abide by.”
