Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Koku Anyidoho has called for support for President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in the fight against corruption.
According to him, previous presidents of Ghana had in their own ways tried to fight corruption, hence it is necessary for Ghanaians to rally behind President Akufo-Addo to help reduce the menace of corruption in the country.

“I have seen President Mills fight corruption, I have seen President Rawlings do it, and I have seen President Mahama do it. Even President Kufuor did it in the case of Mallam Issah. So if President Akufo-Addo is also doing it, let us support him,” Mr Anyidoho said.
In an interview on Asempa FM’s Ekosiisen, Wednesday, Mr Anyidoho said the president’s move in the Kwesi Nyantakyi case is an indication of his readiness to fight corruption in the country.

“The scandals are becoming one too many. Look at the issue about the Communications Ministry, [$89 million contracts with Kelni GVG to deal with revenue losses and simbox fraud involving telecommunication companies], look at the way IMANI is going after Ursula Owusu [Communication Minister].
“Just 16, 17 months, it’s mind-boggling that one government, scandal after scandal,” he said.
To Mr Anyodoho, once President Akufo-Addo himself reported Kwesi Nyantakyi’s influence-peddling and defrauding by false pretense case to the police, “then it means the President is prepared” to fight corruption.
