“Nepotism doesn’t become right because a different government is in power and our religious and traditional leaders must have the courage to speak up against it,” he said.
He also intimated that corruption and nepotism is the bane of Ghana currently.
According to him, Ghana can win the fight against corruption when anti-corruption institutions are strengthened. He called on government to fund the institutions responsible to fight corruption properly.
“They must have the autonomy and independence to sanction and to deal with any person who indulges in corruption.”
The NDC flagbearer also urged government to be tolerant of all forms of criticism. “Government must be tolerant of criticism and when these organisations and investigative bodies expose corruption, government must listen and act.”
The former president was accompanied by the National Chairman of the NDC Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia and former Chief of Staff Julius Debrah.
