National Democratic Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Okudzeto Ablakwa has given a friendly advice to President Nana Akufo-Addo.
According to Ghanaontheglobe.com report, the highly intellectual MP has indicated in an interview with Joy FM’s News File that Ghanaians have lost confidence in the ruling NPP government led by Akufo-Addo.
Ablakwa has told President Akufo-Addo to focus on restoring public confidence in his administration, following the recent post-election survey released by the Ghana Centre for Democratic Development (CDD-Ghana).
Mr. Ablakwa cited the Ameri deal, the manhandling of the former Auditor General, Yao Domelevo, and the resignation of Martin Amidu as examples of the governing NPP’s lack of commitment to fighting corruption.
“If you do the analysis from all the Afrobarometers and juxtapose it with this survey, it is clear that confidence in the President is at an all-time low. The President should be very worried about that. I think the President has to sit up,” Mr. Ablakwa stated

The MP said the findings of the survey cannot be taken lightly, given that the governing NPP had over the years failed to take a firm stance against corruption.
“There have been very palpable, tangible, concrete examples of corruption [under the governing NPP]. The President has had to fire people. He has had to promise investigations, except that often these investigations lead nowhere.”
“Look at how the Auditor General was hounded out of office… This is a celebrated Auditor General of high repute. Yao Domelevo’s only mistake was to dare to surcharge the Senior Minister.”
