We will protect state assets from undisclosed transactions – Prof. Jane Naana

By Majesty 2 Min Read

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) presidential candidate John Dramani Mahama’s running mate for 2024, Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, has pledged to implement policies that will prevent public funds from being syphoned off into shadowy businesses through dubious transactions.

She expressed worry over Ghana’s natural riches and national assets, which appear to be left to the government’s friends and family indefinitely.

She was upset over the erosion of state institutions meant to fight corruption during her official presentation by the NDC on Wednesday, April 24, at the Kofi Ohene Konadu Auditorium at the University of Professional Studies (UPSA).

When the NDC takes office in 2025, Mahama’s running mate promised to strengthen these institutions.

“Too many governmental and non-governmental institutions are rife with corruption; regrettably, the institutions designed to keep corruption in check have been severely undermined. God willing, when the NDC assumes power in January 2025, we will fortify the institutions as we need to.

“It is our responsibility to make sure that our riches aren’t transferred to mysterious organisations through shady business dealings. We cannot get to a point where certain people approach our natural resources and national assets if they are their own property, to be left indefinitely to friends and family.

“We need to have a strong commitment to justice, environmental preservation, and the protection of our persons with disabilities. Institutions that are receptive to our group’s needs must inspire us. Our desire to eradicate corruption must be our passion.
