Prof Opoku Agyemang – We will safeguard the nation’s finances from unclear deals. Stay informed on financial governance.

Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, the vice-presidential candidate alongside John Dramani Mahama for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has pledged to implement measures to safeguard state assets from being redirected to unclear entities through opaque agreements.

She raised concerns about Ghana’s national resources being seemingly handed over indefinitely to government insiders and associates. At her official presentation by the NDC on Wednesday, April 24, at the Kofi Ohene Konadu Auditorium at the University of Professional Studies (UPSA), she expressed disappointment over the erosion of state institutions designed to tackle corruption. Opoku-Agyemang assured that under the NDC administration, these institutions would be strengthened upon assuming office in 2025.

“Corruption is rampant in too many government and non-government institutions; sadly, those institutions meant to check on corruption have been significantly weakened. We must strengthen the institutions and we will do just that when the NDC comes to power in January 2025, God willing.

“It is our duty to ensure that our sources of wealth are not given away to obscure entities shrouded in opaque deals. We must not arrive at a destination where our national assets and natural resources are treated by some as if they were assets of their own creation, to be willed forever to relatives and friends.

“We must be passionate about justice, about the protection of our environment, about protecting our differently abled citizens. We must be passionate about institutions that are responsive to our collective needs. We must be passionate about stamping out corruption.”
