‘Why not Ghana beyond corruption’ – Dutch Ambassador asks Akuffo-Addo

Netherlands’ Ambassador to Ghana, Ron Strikker has asked the government of Ghana to pursue a policy of “Ghana beyond corruption.”

He said this in reaction to the government’s policy of a ‘Ghana beyond aid.’

The administration of Nana Akufo-Addo announced the policy as an objective towards achieving self-reliance for the country.

The policy has since caused controversy with many saying that it is ambiguous. A document on the policy was subsequently launched on May Day 2019.

Sharing his thoughts on the policy, Mr. Strikker said it asked the government to channel its energy to weeding out corruption.
