Haruna Iddrisu, has said Ghana needs a new law that criminalizes unexplained wealth.
Unexplained wealth refers to valuable assets belonging to officials — or others in positions of power and influence — that are clearly incommensurate with their publicly-declared earnings or known business interests.
Mr Iddrisu told TV3’s Evelyn Tengmaa in an exclusive interview on Monday May 24 that this will held in the fight against corruption in the country.
He said this while assuring all supporters and members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and Ghanaians in general that the opposition lawmakers are united in Parliament to hold the Akufo-Addo administration accountable.
The NDC’s side was faced with division especially after all the ministerial nominees of President Akufo-Addo were approved by the Appointments Committee of Parliament in spite of the concerns raised against some of the nominees by some leading members of the party.
The situation led to the resignation of North Tongu Lawmaker Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa from the Appointments Committee on Wednesday March 31.
