Salam Mustapha's remarks come amid ongoing debates and discussions surrounding corruption allegations and the efficacy of anti-corruption efforts within Ghana's political landscape with corruption being a significant concern for many citizens, especially in the context of governance and public administration, Mustapha's statements have stirred considerable interest and debate.

In his statement, Mustapha pointed to Vice President Bawumia's track record and proactive stance on combating corruption during his tenure and emphasized Bawumia's role in spearheading various initiatives aimed at enhancing transparency, such as the digitization of government processes and the implementation of robust accountability mechanisms.

Furthermore, Mustapha underscored the importance of accountability and integrity in governance, highlighting Bawumia's unwavering commitment to upholding these values.
