Controversial Ghanaian media personality, Blakk Rasta, has strongly criticized the Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah, and the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the National Petroleum Authority (NPA), Dr. Mustapha Hamid, for their failure to combat corruption as they had advocated for prior to coming into government.
According to Blakk Rasta, both Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah and Mustapha Hamid were vocal advocates for anti-corruption campaigns during the tenure of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government. However, they have failed to live up to expectations under the administration of President Akufo-Addo.
Blakk Rasta observed that such individuals are more concerned about satisfying themselves rather than the welfare of the general Ghanaian populace, and this is why they have remained silent about corruption in the country.
“There are some people in this nation who, as long as their bellies are full, do not care what happens to the rest of the flock. It’s like in the days of slavery. The person in the house will not think about the rest of the flock as long as he is satisfied. That ‘death syndrome,’ worse than Ebola, is still in our DNA in this country,” expressed Blakk Rasta during his UrbanBlend show on 3FM.
He continued by lambasting Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah and Mustapha Hamid for deceiving Ghanaians to vote for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) while doing worse in terms of the fight against corruption.
“People with whom we used to fight corruption are now in bed with corrupt leaders. People with whom we used to fight corruption together. My brother and my sister, they are now in bed with dirty politics. One such person is Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah, another person is Dr. Mustapha Hamid,” he passionately exclaimed.
Blakk Rasta asserted the need to save and rescue the nation, emphasizing that individuals like Mustapha Hamid and others have deceived and misled the people by pretending to fight corruption while protecting their own interests.
