The Educate Africa Institute (EAI) in a press statement signed by their Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Mr. William Boadi has stated that, the ruling government NPP has intentionally silenced the Special Prosecutor, Mr Martin Amedu, The Paradox of our Time and for that matter Posterity will not forgive them.
Below is the full details about their release
“A man doesn’t plant a tree for himself. He plants it for posterity. The corruption fighters are now corruptioneers” The paradox of our time.
Fellow countrymen, Ghana is calling for a rescue. I have observed that, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has deliberately captured and kept Martin Amidu’s mouth closed.
Mr. Martin Amidu was appointed as Special Proscutor to help fight corruption but at the long run his lense is reflecting light alright but his mouth is closed by the NPP to unable him take action and comment on any corruption allegations in the country.
Ghanaians must know this! The New Patriotic Party and the National Democratic Congress are the same in camera but divided in display. The NPP promised to fight corruption but they are deepening it rather.
Get it clear that, we are obligated to comment on Political Issues, however, I welcome any comments from sympathizers. Ghana first.
“My reasons are;
1. in 2013, MTN GHANA built a six (6) unit classroom block at the cost of GHC 180,000. But the then NDC government also built the same six (6) unit classroom block at the cost of GHC 510,000 in the same year. Please, what is wrong with our honourables?”
“Now, it’s the era of the NPP government that claimed to have the knowledgeable and rich men. What do we see? Corruption scandals.
2. The Director General of Ghana Maritime Authority used a whooping amount of *GHC 135,000* on food and *GHC 66,835.00 was used to construct high-quality hardwood standard kitchen cabinet*. These amount of monies are waste of our taxes while *teachers arrears* are still pending.
3. BOST – Gh15m Contaminated fuel
A scandal; where Ghana has lost about Gh15 million in revenue.
4. A scandal about the CEO of Ghana Export Promotion Authority, [GEPA] and her 2 Deputies transferring monies from the State Enterprise coffers into their personal accounts.
5. A scandal about the CEO of the National Lotteries Authority [NLA], Kofi Osei Ameyaw awarding 11 contracts to the sister-in-law, an issue which has raised questions of conflict of interest and many more.
Ghanaians belief in this current government has in fact, turned to disappointment when considering corruption fight.
“My worry here is that, Ghanaians voted for the NPP based on the following; to fight corruption, activate the rule of law, provide free but quality education, ensure economic development since they have the men etc. But now, corruption celebrates it’s birthday in the country on daily basis.” Let’s shift.
Let’s do the following to stop corruption in Ghana;
1. End impunity rather and close the office of the special prosecutor. A committed Attorney General can do.
2. Reform public administration and finance management.
3. Promote transparency and access to information. The right to information law must be operationalized.
Strengthening citizens demand for anti-corruption and empowering them to hold government accountable is a sustainable approach that helps to build mutual trust between citizens and government.
5. Close international loopholes.Without access to the international financial system, corrupt public officials throughout the world would not be able to launder and hide the proceeds of looted state assets.
Mr President, we want to admonish that, you still have some few times to redeem yourself, so let’s see your actions now! If not, Ghanaians won’t forgive you. They will pay you dearly for failing them.
We are citizens of Ghana. Africa is born in us.
