President John Mahama, whereas addressing a gathering of chiefs and folks at the 2022 version of the Asogli Yam Festival in the Volta Region said the government has lost the combat against corruption.

“This government, the NPP government has completely lost control of the fight against corruption. President Akufo-Addo in his inaugural address promised to protect the public purse.

We won the landslide in 2016 and again decisive margin in 2020. He has never got the figures that I have got in elections in Ghana, he knows” President Akufo-Addo said.
