The flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has asserted that Ghanaians can rely on him to combat corruption if elected as President in the forthcoming December elections.
He insisted that he had never been implicated in any corruption scandal throughout his life.
Dr. Bawumia affirmed that his personal integrity positions him to mitigate the corruption scourge, if not eradicate it entirely.
Addressing the public on Wednesday, February 7, at the University of Professional Studies, Accra, he pledged to digitalize all state agencies as part of efforts to curb corruption.
“If it is someone with personal integrity who is not corrupt, and can be trusted to fight corruption, then your choice, clearly, is Dr. Bawumia. And, if the person you have in mind is someone you can trust to work hard tirelessly, and selflessly for Ghana, it is Dr. Bawumia.”
Dr. Bawumia reiterated his dedication to safeguarding the nation’s natural resources for the collective welfare of all citizens.
“If you are looking for the man who is more committed to protecting and using our natural resources for the benefit of Ghanaians, it is Dr. Bawumia,” he added.
The current administration has faced significant criticism for its perceived defense of officials accused of corruption and related activities.
Additionally, the Office of the Special Prosecutor, established by the government, has been faulted for not meeting the anticipated standards in its anti-corruption endeavors.
