The former Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party, Freddie Blay, has expressed disagreement over the comments made by the former Chairman of the Electoral Commission, Dr Kwadwo Afari-Gyan that Ghana has become poorer due to corruption.
A former Chairman of the Electoral Commission, Dr Kwadwo Afari-Gyan speaking at the Constitution Day Public Lecture organized by the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) Law School and the One Ghana Movement last week, said public institutions charged with the mandate to fight corruption are not doing enough.
According to him, “Over the years, we have become poorer as a nation and as a people, mainly due to pervasive corruption, particularly in the public sector. Unfortunately, some of our key public institutions are becoming institutions of dubious integrity. Increasingly, candidates who lose elections are alleging manipulations and refusing to accept the results;’’.
