National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer hopeful, Professor Joshua Alabi, has urged the Akufo-Addo led government to resort to the court to prove allegations of corruptions against appointees of Former President Mahama.
According to the former boss of the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT), the appropriate steps must be adopted to expose and prosecute corruption as far as the appointees of the previous administration are concerned rather than throwing their names in the media.
“If NDC people have stolen monies, the courts are there, Special Prosecutor, too is there…but if you just shake your head and arbitrarily say this person or that person has stolen money, it is not the right way to go,” he stated.
Speaking to Adom FM’s Captain Smart on Monday, 16 April 2018, the former Vice Chancellor of the University of Professional Studies (UPSA), said: “There are processes that can be used to determine if someone has stolen money… let’s allow the system to work than to use the media to judge people and then sentence them”.
He condemned the practice of labeling every past government official as corrupt whenever a new government takes office, and admonished state authorities to use the right channels to prosecute officials found to have acted wrongly.
“Let us let the process bring those who have stolen government money to book and stop using the media to tarnish the image of individuals,” he admonished.
