Source: peacefmonline.com - Flagbearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo Addo has admonished President John Dramani Mahama and his government to set right and deterrent examples for Ghanaian public officials....
Nana Addo quoted J.B Danquah for addressing certain pertinent national issues during the Nkrumah regime on November 4, 1959 saying; "This country can only prove itself fit to govern itself if those primarily charged with that governance first set the supreme example of incorruptibility"
The NPP Flagbearer, therefore, believes the Mahama administration and appointees should show leadership by example by deterring his public servants from seeking wealth in government.
"We need the personal examples of our political leaders, especially the President of our Republic to demonstrate that public service is exactly that; public service. Those who seek wealth in public service have no place there. Their place is in the private sector where the making of money is a legitimate and necessary activity."
"If Danquah were alive today, President John Mahama would be receiving letters or more probably emails from him all the time and so will the Minister of Finance on how to the country's resources should be put to better use," he added.
