P.C Ofori who was a former New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament says this after Mahama asserted in a BBC interview a day ago that he has never accepted bribe
Amid all the fuss on the corrupt nature of the present government, Anti-corruption Campaigner P.C Appiah Ofori, has stated that President John Mahama is not corrupt. P.C Ofori who was a former New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament says this after Mahama asserted in a BBC interview a day ago that he has never accepted bribe.
And of course there have been some blasting against the president by some critics. But Ofori has come out to analyze the issues Mahama talked on during his interview. Ofori who spoke to Citi News said that Mahama is not a corrupt person. According to him, he (Ofori) “can vouch 100% that he (Mahama) is not corrupt“.
The former NPP MP, said that since their days in Parliament, the President has never done anything culpable or detrimental to his integrity.
He however added that Mahama has failed to fight corruption, in the sense that he has not been able to transform the corrupt system in the country. He said this making reference to some corruption scandals that rocked the government in recent times including the ones exposed in the Auditor-General’s annual reports. This he said to give his own opinion on Mahama’s assertion during the interview that he (Mahama) has fought corruption better than other regimes.
President Mahama in the interview had said that his administration is fighting corruption unlike his predecessors who felt exposing corruption would bring down their governments. He also said that one of the major priorities of his government was getting rid of corruption which has so engulfed the country.
Mahama is among world leaders invited by British Prime Minister David Cameron for an anti-corruption summit organised by the UK government.
