Speaking at the National Policy Summit in Accra Monday, Mr. Ofori-Atta noted most of the leakages are occurring in the daily lives of people and not necessarily by politicians.

“These are normal Ghanaians perpetuating leakages of untold proportions and we are in the middle of investigating a lot of these,” he served notice.

He gave the assurance that the government led by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is rolling out measures to stabilise the “macro space” for Ghanaians to own the economy as well as “reduce the margin of exploitation” during elections.
