Member of Parliament for Builsa South, Dr Clement Abas Apaak, has slammed Vice President of Imani Africa, Kofi Bentil for labeling the current administration as the most corrupt while simultaneously exonerating the Vice President.
Dr Apaak raised concerns over the rationale behind Kofi Bentil’s defense of Dr Mahamudu Bawumia amidst corruption allegations against the Akufo-Addo government.
In a recent edition of Newsfile, Kofi Bentil asserted that the Akufo-Addo government is more corrupt than the previous John Dramani Mahama administration.
However, he urged Ghanaians to consider voting for Dr. Bawumia as president, suggesting that Dr Bawumia should not be held accountable for the failures of the Akufo-Addo government.
Dr Apaak criticized this argument, stating that it lacks logical coherence. He argued that if the current government is indeed more corrupt than the previous administration, then Dr. Bawumia cannot be absolved of responsibility for the alleged corruption.
“The Vice President is part of the corrupt government, which has mismanaged the economy. In fact, he is the 2nd in command. So, how can we blame the government yet excuse the Vice President? Such an illogical argument can not be without some form of inducement,” Dr. Apaak emphasized.
Furthermore, Dr. Apaak urged Ghanaians to pay attention to Mr. Isaac Adongo’s presentation on February 14, 2024. Mr. Adongo’s presentation is titled “Ghana’s Next Chapter, the Height of Clueless Leadership, next installment of Bold LIES, Hardship and Aggravated Economic Mismanagement!”
This ongoing debate underscores the contentious issue of corruption within the Akufo-Addo administration and raises questions about the accountability of high-ranking officials, including Dr. Bawumia, in addressing these allegations.
