The former employee of TV3, a subsidiary of Media General said the President has clearly lost the willpower to fight corruption he touted so much to fight prior to his ascension to the highest of the land.
Bridget, who has been an avid critic of the New Patriotic Patry (NPP) under the stewardship of Nana Akufo Addo said when she meets the president, ‘she would shake his hands and tell him to sit up. Sit up, you are 76 and should leave a better legacy. He’s leaving a tattered corrupt legacy.’
According to her, the manner in which Auditor General, Daniel Domelevo and the government’s treatment of Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu is an indication of a lack of will by the President to tackle corruption.
‘Transparency international is the yardstick and in their report Nana Addo’s best corruption result is best than Mahama worst. As a leader you would fix it if you have no hand in it but when you sit comfortably,’ she said on Starr FM.
‘The Auditor-General is a powerful institution and has been like that for long. When the Auditor-General report comes out, everyone is excited because they want to know what goes on and it’s been like that since time immemorial. When the report came out in 2015/2106, the president did not sack Domelevo but what has this president done. He haunted, embarrassed, and dragged him out of office,’ she said.
‘The President also set up the Office of the Special prosecutor. Two people trusted by Ghanaians. Put Nana Addo there, Amidu and Domelevo and Ghanaians will pick the two of them over Nana Addo. The very thing NPP admired about him (Martin Amidu) they hated it because he was doing it to them.’
‘They didn’t like him because they thought he was coming to torment NDC appointees but you appointed him to be a job including both NDC and NPP. Somehow when it involves the president, they chased him out,’ she said.
