Central Regional Chairman for NDC, Bernard Allotey Jacobs, has challenged the Member of Parliament for Ada East, Comfort Cudjoe Ghansah to name appointees who stole under the Mahama-administration.
Mrs Cudjoe Ghansah who was also a minister of State under the John Mahama administration has implied that NPP and NDC are both thieves but NPP steals more than NDC.

According to her, Mahama’s NDC ‘stealing and corruption’, if it is to be believed, was only in “coins”, compared to the massive “dollar” corruption and stealing she alleges is ongoing under the Akufo-Addo administration.
In a JoyNews interview, the MP was full of praise for John Mahama, insisting that he was not corrupt but was victimized by a perception of corruption which stuck with him.

But Allotey Jacobs is calling on her to mention those appointees she claims were stealing ‘coins’ in the Mahama administration.
According to him, former appointees under Mahama were not corrupt and therefore could not fathom why Mrs Cudjoe Ghansah would make such allegations by tagging her party as corrupt.
“If she claims NDC steals coins and NPP steals dollars I really don’t understand why. She should come out and tell us those who stole coins because, for all I know, my party was not corrupt neither was its appointees.
“Maybe she stole the coins and so she should come out and tell us, else I will only see it as a perception,” he told Adom News.
Meanwhile, the Ghana Integrity Initiative (GII) is also calling on state anti-corruption agencies to invite the MP over her admission that NDC only took coins when they were in power in comparison with the NPP who she accused of stealing huge amount to money.

According to them, statements by the MP need to be interrogated further to ascertain the level of stealing by her government and the stealing under the current administration to protect the citizenry.
Senior Program Manager at the GII, Mary Addah says some of these comments should not be allowed to be swept under the carpet, therefore, people who make them should be held responsible for their actions.
