Second Lady, Hajia Samira Bawumia, has said that she is proud of President Akufo-Addo’s no-nonsense approach in fighting corruption.
According to the second lady, she is satisfied with her government’s fight against corruption three years after they came to power.
The Akufo-Addo government has been lampooned over what many describe as its kneejerk handling of corruption issues with sections referring to the president as a clearing agent.
The ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) when in opposition promised to make corruption unattractive but many anti-corruption groups say it is rather the opposite that is happening.
But, Mrs. Bawumia said there is a good commitment to fighting corruption under President Akufo-Addo compared what was witnessed under the erstwhile administration.
“Are there unfortunate incidents, absolutely. Its human institution but I’m satisfied with our President’s no-nonsense approach and how he is fighting it,” Mrs Bawumia said on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen monitored by MyNewsGh.com.
She added that most of the corruption issues recorded in government are unfortunate but was confident they would still win the fight.
