Former Central Regional Minister and a member of the Communication team of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwamena Duncan is on a crusade to get former President John Dramani Mahama jailed for his bad leadership and corrupt practices.
Kwamena Duncan wonders why Mr. Mahama is still walking free after all that he has done to Ghana and the citizenry under his regime.
His comments are in relation to a Facebook post by former President John Mahama.
Mr. John Dramani Mahama, in the Facebook post, strenghtened the National Democratic Congress(NDC) stance on the controversial e-levy.
He noted that the NDC will not back down on their opposition to the e-levy saying “the NDC remains opposed to the imposition of the numerous fresh taxes on Ghanaians at a time when Government is living large and unwilling or unable to trim expenditure, cut waste and check corruption”.
“These burdensome taxes will erode business capital, especially at a time when Government has crowded out the private sector’s access to credit by its voracious appetite for borrowing”.
“The Ghanaian economy has been collapsed by President Nana Akufo-Addo and Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia.
The debt crisis, for which there are very few tangible projects to show for, and worsening economic hardship of Ghanaians amply demonstrate the negative impact of a collapsed economy,” he added.
Replying Mr. Mahama on Peace FM’s ”Kokrokoo”, Kwamena Duncan said; ”It is only here, in our jurisdiction – the part of the world, that a person of this kind who should be doing time in jail who gets that opportunity again to stand on a platform and accuse someone else of corruption and further stating that we are opposed to tax that will seek to see us progress. It’s only in our part of the world. Elsewhere he would be doing time in jail!”
Chronicling some corrupt activities that characterized the administration of the former President, Hon. Duncan strongly believed the former President should be imprisoned by now.
”President Mahama who decided to set up what he called SADA (Savannah Accelerated Development Authority) and through that medium, millions and millions and millions of Ghanaian good cedis deprived his own people . . . My goodness! I’m saying that it is only our part of the world that a person of this sort will have the audacity to talk, elsewhere he would be doing time in jail.”
