It must be stated, for the avoidance of doubt, that the Volta Patriotic Forum fully supports any effort by government to fight corruption. This effort at fighting the canker, nonetheless, must not be fought on the basis of tribal lines.
We wish to appeal to government to do everything possible to repair the harm the scandal is causing our country. We wish to know the role played by the substantive Minister, Hon. Isaac Asiamah, as far as the scandal is concerned.
The forum is convinced that Pius Enam Hadzide is not the only one to take responsibility when the Sector Minister is still at post at the time of the scandal. We believe the substantive Minister was in the know as far as the visa for NPP activists, parading themselves as Journalists, is concerned; and it is our conviction that any objective enquiry or inquest into the matter will reveal same to be true.
If the Deputy Minister, Pius Enam Hadzide, needs must take the fall, then the substantive sector Minister, Hon. Isaac Asiamah, under whose marching orders and directions the Deputy acts, must take a heavier fall to prove the government’s genuineness and seriousness in the fight against corruption.
