The President of the Central University College, Prof. Kwesi Yankah has questioned the commitment of anti-corruption campaigners in government to fight the menace in the President John Mahama led-administration.

According to him, utterances of individuals like Daniel Batidam, who advises the president on governance and corruption leave much to be desired.

He, however, mentioned former Sports minister Elvis Afriyie Ankrah who after a scandal-plagued Word Cup showing in Brazil was quickly reshuffled to the presidency.

He said the tendency of government appointees embroiled in corruption scandals to later find work at the presidency is making that office a “comfortable refuge for the corrupt”.

Speaking at an  anti-corruption forum in Accra, Prof. Kwesi Yankah stated that, “It is undemocratic to expect the Presidency to lead the anti-corruption drive.

“Mahama is not a judge to fight corruption; they say.

“With such a lame excuse for lack of anti-corruption initiatives within the presidency, one will wonder if the terms of reference in Batidam’s appointment letter will hold since his boss is not a judge.”
