The Minister of Roads and Highways, Kwasi Amoako-Attah says his Ministry is full of corrupt officials.

He says these officials are involved in thievery and other bad practices that hinder the quality of roads constructed in the country.

Speaking to journalists after inspecting works on the ongoing VALCO Roundabout-Kpone Road reconstruction project, an angry Kwasi Amoako-Attah says officials of his Ministry should be held responsible for the deteriorating nature of roads in Ghana.

He bemoaned the countless times some of these alleged corrupt officials were dismissed and replaced with new ones who turned out to be worse than the dismissed ones and called for the prosecution of such officials to discourage the practice.

“There are a lot of corrupt people, there are a lot of thieves in my own Ministry. You sack them and employ new ones, the new ones turn out to be worse than the ones dismissed. What sort of country are we building for ourselves? Somebody must apprehend these people but no one is doing that.”
