Speaking on TV3NewDay on Wednesday, September 1, he said the finding were feedback from the Ghanaian public hence it was necessary for the government to take a look at it and find out why despite all the interventions put in place Ghanaians still had such perceptions about the government.
He noted the finding that sixty-two percent (62%)of Ghanaian are not confident in the ability of the Government to curb corruption and impunity by its officials in the next four years was significant and government must take a second look at some of the decision which had not gone down well with the populace.
“I think the feedback to us as a government let take it serious and I know that my leaders have accepted it and are taken it serious. Let look at it why is it that in spite of everything we are doing the people still believe that we are going to fight corruption the way we ought to fight.
“The perception is that about 62percent going forward in this administration in the next four years don’t believe we can fight corruption the way we said want to do. It telling, is telling to be honest with you. And I think we have done a lot of policy decisions resourcing anti corruption agencies to be able to function and perform and do very well we have established OSP and all that and yet the people across 62 % think our commitment is not enough”.
Speaking on the programme monitored by GhanaPlus.com, he said although,propaganda played a major role in the perceptions, government cannot blame it entirely on propaganda and recommend government made clear some concerns about corruption raise by the public.
“My campaign manager has put it right that propaganda is part but you don’t only blame propaganda we are in government now there are certain decisions that we have taken that didn’t go well with the public, he said ”.
