The National Democratic Congress [NDC] Member of Parliament [MP] for the Juaboso constituency in the Western Region, Kwabena Mintah Akandoh believes corruption can never be dealt with under the Nana Addo-led administration.
He was emphatic that the President has done little to fight the canker after winning the presidency.
Speaking on NEAT FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’, Kwabena Mintah Akandoh accused the President of appointing 'his family to the presidency and that is corruption. How can he fight it?'
He added that various members of his family, close friends and assocites have all been appointed into government with a simple mission of looting on behalf of the President.
According to the Juaboso MP, corruption has escalated since the reign of President Akufo-Addo.
"There is nothing he can do about corruption, all his people are untouchable, it's a game plan he sow himself," he told Mc Jerry Osei-Agyemang.
