When elected as the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer in the 2024 elections, John Mahama has pledged to battle corruption and poor governmence.
Speaking to NDC executives, members, supporters, and sympathizers in Garu in the Upper East Region as part of his campaign to lead the party to the 2024 elections, he claimed corruption is one of the ways state resources are wasted.
He said “NDC is going to come into office, and we are going to launch a strong fight against corruption because we all know that corruption is one of the waste pipes in this country. People who appropriate the money of the state must be brought to book and sanctioned and NDC is going to do that.
“It doesn’t matter whether the people are our own or from some other party, we will make sure that the sword is slammed equally and anyone who takes the people’s money must suffer for it.”
