Mahama is incorruptible; he’ll better protect the public purse than Bawumia – Sammy Gyamfi

The National Communications Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi, has declared that the party’s flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama, stands out as the most suitable candidate to safeguard the public purse, describing him as ‘incorruptible’.

Emphasising the importance of entrusting the nation’s finances to Mr Mahama, Gyamfi highlighted his unwavering commitment to combat corruption if elected on December 7.

Speaking at the party’s ‘Moments of Truth’ series in Accra on Monday, February 19, Mr Gyamfi asserted that the governing New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) flagbearer, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, lacks credibility to tackle corruption.

Drawing a comparison between the two flagbearers, the NDC National Communications Officer argued that Mahama has demonstrated a strong aversion to corruption, whereas Bawumia has shown little action in the fight against corruption.

He stated that Dr. Bawumia is corrupt and therefore cannot be relied upon to combat the menace in the manner that Ghanaians anticipate.

“H.E John Dramani Mahama has demonstrated, both in government and out of government, that he detests corruption, and will never condone corruption, nor shield perpetrators of corrupt acts. He has stated clearly, that the days of the corruption clearing agent, will come to an end on January 7, 2025 when by the grace of God, he assumes office as President. He has said and demonstrated before, that the sword of the fight against corruption will cut both ways under his government, whether you are a member of his government or not. John Mahama is incorruptible.”

“Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about our main opponent in the upcoming 2024 general elections. I am talking about Alhaji Bawumia, the failed Vice President and Chair of the Economic Management Team, the clueless driver’s mate and discredited Flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party, who has proven to be not only dishonest but also very corrupt,” he said.

He criticised the Akufo-Addo-Bawumia administration for its failure to combat corruption after being in power for seven years, urging voters to reject them in the December polls.

“We call on the Ghanaian electorate not to allow President Akufo-Addo and his corrupt cabal of family and friends, to install as President, their puppet (Alhaji Mahamudu Bawumia), whose sole mission is to cover up the many ills of this remarkably corrupt administration and insulate wrongdoers including himself, from prosecution.”

“We are absolutely confident that the good people of Ghana will rise to the occasion and reject corruption, nepotism, impunity, arrogance of power and economic mismanagement come 7th December 2024. Enough of the corruption; enough of the thievery; enough of the abuse of the public purse, which continues to impose untold hardships and suffering on the nation. Enough is enough,” he added.
