Fomer President John Dramani Mahama has issued a serious caution to members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) that he will deal with all corrupt individuals ruthlessly regardlessly.
He warned that all officials who will serve in the next NDC administration will be held accountable by anti-corruption bodies for probe and prosecution if they involve themselves in any corrupt practices when given opportunity to serve.
Mr Mahama also reiterated his readiness to hold officials of the governing NPP who are on the list of engaging in corrupt practices to account for their deeds if NDC wins the next elections.
Mr Mahama made these comments while addressing party supporters and fanatics at the Volta Regional House of Chiefs on Wednesday, January 17.
“If we do not establish fairness in our system in fighting corruption, it will overwhelm this country, A lot of times, lip service is paid to it.
“The anti-corruption institutions are fettered and are not able to dispense their mandate independently and unhindered,” John Mahama said.
“We will hold people in this government who have misconducted themselves accountable, but same time as we hold them accountable, people who misconduct themselves in our administration will face the full rigours of the law, the anti-corruption institutions will come after them, and I am not going to interfere in the work of these institutions if they are investigating you.” he added
