Dr. Kobina Arthur Kennedy, a senior member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has launched a scathing critique of his own party' s approach to combating corruption in Ghana. The outspoken remarks come as a significant departure from his party's stance and raise questions about the government' s commitment to its anti-corruption promises.
In the run-up to the 2016 elections, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo made fighting corruption a central theme of his campaign, promising to address this longstanding issue and safeguard the nation' s finances. However, as the Akufo-Addo administration has progressed, reality seems far removed from these commitments.
Dr. Kobina Arthur Kennedy, a respected figure within the NPP, expressed his concern over the apparent discrepancy between promises made and actions taken. He acknowledged that the criticisms leveled by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) regarding corruption in the NPP are, at times, difficult to refute.
"Sometimes what the NDC says about the NPP is really true, " Dr. Kennedy lamented, highlighting the prevalence of corruption issues since his party assumed power. His candid assessment suggests a growing internal struggle within the NPP regarding the handling of corruption allegations.
