My next administration will defeat corruption – Mahama

The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), and former President, John Dramani Mahama has made a firm promise to win the fight against corruption in his next administration.

According to him, the next NDC government will win the fight against corruption in the country.

Mr. Mahama is of the belief that the menace is crippling Ghana’s economy, a situation which needs to be addressed urgently.

He made these remarks during an interaction with the Christian Ecumenical Council on Monday, May 20, 2024.

The NDC flagbearer indicated that the next administration will put in place adequate measures to fight and defeat corruption.

The former President said, “The impacts of many cases of financial malfeasance, stealing, cost inflation, sole source contracts, and projects that are funded but never completed are becoming more the norm than the exemption. Recently, MPs raised the issue of the Pwalugu multi-purpose dam project, which was supposed to be an almost $1 billion investment.”

According to Mr. Mahama, a contract was awarded, and $12 million was paid to the contractor for absolutely no work done, “There are many cases that I could cite.”

“I make a firm promise that the administration that I will lead will fight the canker of corruption and defeat it,” he concluded.
