John Mahama says he is quite hopeful that the 43-year-old lawyer will live above reproach in the fight against corruption
Speaking in a radio interview as part of his tour of the Eastern Region on Tuesday (12 October), Mahama said he is quite hopeful that the 43-year-old lawyer will live above reproach.
“If President Akufo-Addo keeps exonerating his appointees engaged in corruption, the act will never stop. The government must take steps to stem corruption in the country.
“We have a new Special Prosecutor. Looking at how he has started his work, we are all hopeful that he will fight corruption… and all of us will support him to do his work,” Mahama told Koforidua-based Sunrise FM.
