Shots fired! Ghana’s politicians are “glorified thieves” – Prof Adei

At least eight in 10 politicians in Ghana are “glorified thieves”, a former Rector of the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), Professor Stephen Adei, has said.

Prof. Adei noted that corruption is so rampant in Ghana’s society to the extent that Members of Parliament (MPs) who are supposed to be honourable men and women have soiled themselves with the menace.

He alleged that until the legislators are bribed they do not want to act on their responsibilities at the committee levels, adding some even demand for extra bribes for their girlfriends.

“The other day somebody asked me a question and I was so shocked,” he recalled while addressing the 40th anniversary of the SAPS School in Accra.

“The person asked whether I gave bribe to Parliament for them to pass GIMPA’s law. Not knowing that now if you want Parliament to pass anything else, not only do you bribe the committee, but after they have gotten their share, they ask you where is our last top? In other words; you haven’t made provision for our girlfriends.”

He added: “It’s time now in Ghana for us to rise; and it for us to lay down the foundations of righteousness in the next generation. Train your children to be servant-leaders wherever they are.”

“At least eight in 10 politicians in Ghana are glorified thieves although almost every need of theirs is met by the state. We have to stop it,” the outspoken former Rector opined.

Prof. Adei has therefore stressed the need for parents and teachers to inculcate the fear of God in children in order to guarantee a bright future for Ghana.

“Statistics show that 80 percent of all people who will go to heaven make their decision for Jesus Christ before the age of 18. The children should grow up knowing Jesus Christ and if we do so, we will not have judges who collect bribes to prevent justice”.
