The flagbearer of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, has announced a stringent new policy in a move to tackle the controversial issue of state asset acquisition by government officials,

Speaking to journalists in Accra on Sunday,7 July 2024, Mr. Mahama committed to a zero-tolerance approach, vowing that no public office holder under his administration would be allowed to purchase state assets.

“Appointees and public office holders must change their attitudes,” the NDC flagberer urged.

 “That is what we’re going to insist on. That people we appoint are modest, they are humble, they will open up to the people, and they’ll do the things that will make the lives of our young people better and so we’re going hold them to a higher criteria of service. You must not go and buy state property.”

Mr. Mahama further emphasised his unwavering stance: “Anybody serving in my government will not be allowed to buy a state asset.”

He added: “Nobody serving in my government will buy a state asset. Vehicles or cars or buildings or land or anything, nobody serving in our government will be allowed to buy a state asset.”
