    Hannah Tetteh disagrees with Bagbin over MPs corrupt claim


    Former Minister of Foreign Affairs Madam Hannah Tetteh has disagreed with statements by the second deputy Speaker of Parliament Alban Bagbin that politicians are corrupt because of the existing system.

    The former Majority Leader on Starr Chat Wednesday told host Bola Ray that “we should all admit, we are all corrupt, it is a fact, because of the system.”

    “Because of the system we are operating now, even if you bring Angel Gabriel he’ll be corrupt. We treat public office in Ghana, particularly political office, as private property.

    “We allow people to look for money from anywhere, anyhow, to sponsor themselves and it’s now very, very expensive to get into public office and then you say please save the public, not the sponsors; he who pays the piper calls the tune.”

    But the former MP for Awutu Senya East in the Central region in a reaction on Social Media site Twitter stated that good governance can’t just be a mantra.

    “Alban! I didn’t listen to the show and don’t know the context in which he said this but I can’t agree. Good governance can’t be just a mantra,” Madam Tetteh wrote.
