Former First Lady Nana Konadu Agyemang-Rawlings has bemoaned the festering corruption in the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

At a ceremony to elect the Greater Accra regional executives of the National Democratic Party (NDP) in Accra on Thursday, Nana Konadu said the Mahama administration's appetite for shady deals was killing the Ghanaian people.

She cited for instance the ballooned budget for the Ridge Hospital.

She said whereas it cost Dangote $12 million to build a 1000-bed hospital in Nigeria, the government was spending over $250 million to expand the Ridge Hospital to a 420-bed facility.

She said the NDC's campaign slogan of "Changing lives, Transforming Ghana" is a mere propaganda.

"You are transforming our lives into the negative. It’s not positive… We’re being killed in this country."

"We are not interested in the nicety of who is smiling on TV. We are not interested in who is walking around and telling us that he is transforming our lives. Put your hands in your pockets and see if your life is being transformed. This is an indictment on our nation. And nobody is talking about it.

She stated that  her administration will "restore participatory democracy" in Ghana, which will empower Ghanaians to be bold to criticize the government of the day.

"We also want to ensure that probity and accountability is upheld…people talk about it but they have their hands in the national coffers. We have to be vocal and speak against all of these… Let’s all look at the individuals who are claiming they can change your lives. Analyse each one critically and take a firm decision against incompetence, abuse of power, corruption. Tell your family members enough is enough. Let’s vote them out and have Ghana get up to reality and progress."
