Domelevo scores Akufo-Addo 2 out of 10 in fight against corruption


Former Auditor General Daniel Yao Domelevo has stated that the President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has failed in the fight against corruption.

He said he would rate him around 3 or 2 because of the funding he provided to various institutions in the fight against corruption.

Domelevo stated that the president did not commit to fighting corruption during his tenure.

“I will put him around 3 or 2, just giving him credit for the funding he provided to the institutions. But as for commitment, which is key, I think he has failed. I have seen the government’s drive toward digitalization, and we are being made to believe this is all aimed at fighting corruption, and I laugh. Who says there is no digital corruption?

“IT fraud is on a higher scale than even manual fraud, so if there are no consequences for misbehaviour, the fraud will be digitized beyond what you can even think about, and it will mean we are throwing our money after bad money. So the commitment from the presidency is the most importan
t part; hence, I will give them 3 or 2 out of 10,” he told GH One TV.
