The ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has described the reaction from the National Democratic (NDC) to President Akufo-Addo’s briefing on corruption and the ‘PDS scandal’ as tasteless and vague.
The General Secretary of the NPP, John Boadu says their opponents failed to understand the input of President Akufo-Addo’s briefing.
He said if the NDC took time to review the president’s speech at the Bar Conference, he believes they would have revised their speech.
Addressing the media and scores of NPP supporters on Wednesday at the party’s headquarters, Mr Boadu said the Akufo-Addo-led government had demonstrated enough commitment to fighting corruption.
The NDC’s speech was a tasteless and unappetizing soup full of innuendos and vague suppositions without solutions. The speech reflects their ethos and principles that has been rejected by the Ghanaian people, he said.
The passage of the RTI Bill and the establishment of the Office of the Special Prosecutor were stepping stones for the fight against the menace, he added.
