The Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA) is convinced the government is not committed to rooting out corruption in the country.
MFWA Executive Director, Braimah Sulemana said the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) led by President Nana Akufo-Addo has pathetically failed to end the menace of corruption.
“For me, it has been a failure. I have not seen any commitment on the part of government to dealing with the menace,” he said.
He made the comment on News File during the programmes review of the President’s 2016 campaign promise to end corruption.
Many anti-graft personalities, including the Auditor-General, Daniel Domelevo and former Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, among others have come under severe attack in the hands of supporters and some government officials.
“At some point, it was almost becoming a crime within this administration to be seen to fight corruption,” he said.
Mr Akufo-Addo has won a second term in a disputed election. The Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama, has refused to concede after accusing the Electoral Commission of changing the will of Ghanaians.
Mr Braimah was emphatic that, “in the next four years, even though its the same leader we hope that things may change.”
