I will prosecute my own appointees if they engage in corruption – John Mahama


According to John Mahama, should he be voted into power again, he will make sure to prosecute corrupt officials in his government rather than wait for a different administration to take up such matters.

Addressing supporters of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Volta region, he assured Ghanaians that his government will not relent on the fight against corruption.

“When NDC comes to power, we will investigate all outstanding corruption cases and we are not going to prosecute only our opponent, we will caution our ministers and everybody because if you indulge in corruption, we won’t wait for another government to prosecute, we will prosecute you ourselves”, he noted.

Mr. Mahama further claimed that special Prosecutor Martin Amidu’s hands have been tied by the Akufo-Addo government and, so, he cannot go after any government official or member of the governing New Patriotic Party for alleged corruption.

There are cases at the office of the Special Prosecutor but they have tied his hand”, Mr Mahama said, adding: “He can’t investigate them, they have stopped him”.

“As long as the offender is an NPP person, he [Martin Amidu] can’t do anything”, the flag bearer of the biggest opposition party said.
