Ben Dotsei Malor, a former Communications Advisor to President John Dramani Mahama, has asked the Akufo-Addo government to bring officials of the past government who embezzled state monies while in office to book.
According to him, corruption in any form can be deadly, hence the need to punish culprits in the previous administration to deter government officials from going down that path.
Mr Malor, responding to a comment posted by ace blogger Kwame Gyan on his Facebook page on Tuesday May 23, said society must desist from defending corrupt officials since graft is suicidal.
He wrote: “Anyone who stole Ghana’s money in the NDC administration must be called to account. Money stolen from the people must be returned to the people. Corruption in any form and by anyone is deadly in the long run to our people and disastrous for our quest to achieve rapid progress.
“We must shed light on these matters and expose what is wrong so that what is right can thrive. This should serve as a deterrent to those in positions of authority today.
“We – as a society – must also desist from promoting, defending, and honouring criminals, thieves, and robbers, just because they appear to share some of their loot with manipulated minds and unprincipled goons.
“We must shift that honour to those working tirelessly to resist corruption and evil and those striving every day in countless sacrificial ways to make Ghana truly great.”
