PPP will demonstrate until gov’t tackles corruption.

The 2012 vice presidential candidate of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Eva Lokko says the party will push for the fight against corruption until government takes realistic steps to stop the canker.
She led the PPP’S “ayefe notse” demonstration against corruption on Thursday as they marched through some principal streets of Accra.
Ms Lokko said: “From today, we will organize activities to let Ghanaians know what corruption is about and how it is affecting every single person in the country, regardless of your status in this country.”

She expressed the hope that “Ghanaians will understand that corruption is what is stopping the country from developing; this is just the beginning.”

The demonstration saw hundreds of demonstrators clad in red, wielding placards with different inscriptions; "Chop, chop go kill Ghana,” "Incorruptible leadership, our goal," "Say No to corruption," "Abuse of poverty too much,” and "Put our interest first."

According to the protesters, corruption by public office holders was deepening in Ghana and admonished government to lead the crusade of accountability in the management of public resources.
