The government of the Convention Peoples’ Party (CPP) under the leadership of Dr. Michael Abu Sakara will deal ruthless with corrupt government officials to serve as a deterrent to other public office holders, the party’s 2012 manifesto has stated. The party has identified lack of political will as the bane of the fight against corruption, which accordingly has undermined public confidence in government. The manifesto states the CPP will use its stand on corruption to attract votes to win the December polls. It says corruption has cost the nation billions of Ghana Cedis as a result of fraudulent practices in government and government projects. The party says, it would adequately resource public institutions, such as Commission for Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) and the Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO).
