Ansa-Asare accuses Akufo-Addo of heading Ghana’s most corrupt govt


Former Director of the Ghana School of Law, Kwaku Ansa-Asare, has stated that the Akufo-Addo government is the most corrupt in Ghana’s history.

“I don’t have the statistics but watching the political terrain, and the various approaches to the fight against corruption, I would say that this is the worst government we have ever had to combat corruption,” he told Accra-based Citi FM in an interview.

He continued: “I have said it before. I granted an interview and I said: ‘Any government that will come and shout from the rooftop, ‘I’m going to fight corruption’, will be the worst in terms of fighting corruption. That will be the most corrupt government.'”

“Akufo-Addo’s government is the worst ever, the most corrupt government we have ever had,” Mr Ansa-Asare asserted.

Comparing this government to others in the Fourth Republic, Mr Ansa-Asare scored it ‘F’ as far as corruption fight is concerned.

“At least, I have witnessed Rawlings, Kufuor, Mills and Mahama. If I have to score them and award them marks, the last and worst will be the current government, followed by John Mahama’s government. Mills will be first, Kufuor second, Rawlings third, Akufo-Addo last, in terms of grade one to four.”

“We’re all witnesses to scandal after scandal. The latest is the [Pwalugu] dam. We don’t even know where the dam is. We don’t know what has happened, but there’s a dam.” “One-District-One-Factory: the monies. We want to build the Cathedral, so, we take the monies. They used the Cathedral to milk us. the government is milking the ordinary Ghanaian,” he complained.
