Mahama: My administration will reclaim wealth stolen through corrupt means.

The flagbearer of the National Democratic Party (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, has promised that his administration will cooperate with appropriate authorities and allies to retrieve assets and money acquired via corruption if elected president in the general elections scheduled for December 7.

Former President Mahama lamented the mounting incidences of corruption and apparent contempt for fiscal discipline by the Akufo-Addo administration, promising to do his utmost to guarantee that any funds wrongfully gained are recovered if he wins the forthcoming elections.

“Notwithstanding all these socio-economic difficulties, the young people continue to observe the opulence of the [New Patriotic Party] administration’s officials and their families chartering private jets at $20,000 per hour for trips that our own Falcon Executive Jet could have done.

“And as the Minister for Defence explained, it [the Falcon Executive Jet] had no shower for a presidential bath. Ghana’s youth have further experienced how a minister could stash millions of dollars in her home and only God knows the full extent of Ghanaian taxpayers’ money that has been stashed away by many others.

“But I say to the good people of Ghana that, working with Ghanaians and international anti-corruption partners, we shall do all that is humanly possible to retrieve such wrongly acquired wealth.”

In a live broadcast dubbed “Mahama Conversations,” Mr. Mahama made reference to the controversy surrounding the controversial stashing of over $1 million by former Sanitation Minister Cecilia Dapaah in her Abelemkpe residence, which was stolen by her domestic staff. He also promised to promote collaborations in his quest to recover every single Cedi that was unlawfully taken from taxpayers.
