Former Central Regional Minister, Kwamena Duncan, has questioned the moral right of former President John Mahama to criticize President Nana Akufo-Addo.
Former President John Mahama, during his recent 'Thank You' tour in Wa in the Upper East Region, accused the President of mismanaging the economy and charged Ghanaians to vote out the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2024.
“The NPP has no intention of fighting corruption, and so the only way they can be made to account to the people of Ghana is for them to leave office so that the new government will come and audit them and show where they have gone wrong.
“Otherwise, all the money they have stolen, they will just walk away with it. If you participate in politics or are a participant in public service, one of the first things you must be willing to do is to be accountable to the people,” Mr Mahama said.
He added; “The only way they could be accountable is for them to leave office so that the people of Ghana can ask them questions and audit them to make sure they account for the period they were in office.”
But Kwamena Duncan wonders why Mr. Mahama is walking free.
Making his submissions on Peace FM's 'Kokrokoo' programme, he recollected the Airbus scandal citing the Ex-President as receiving kickbacks in the purchase of aircraft for the Ghana Armed Forces and also reminded Ghanaians of some uncouth comments Mr. Mahama made while as President of the Republic.
Further alluding to some corrupt practices involving Mr. Mahama and under his administration, Kwamena Duncan was convinced the former President should be serving a jail term by now.
"President Mahama today has the gut to talk about corruption. If it was elsewhere, President Mahama indeed should be doing some time in the jail," he said.
