The former presidential hopeful, Professor Kwabena Frimpong Boateng says corruption is next to oxygen in Ghana.
According to him, there is no indication the level of corruption in Ghana is dwindling.
The former CEO of the Korle Bu Teaching hospital told German international broadcaster DW that priorities in Ghana are not being set out properly by political leaders.
“It would be difficult for us to make strides and not that we don’t have the people there but because we don’t have the technology” Dr. Frimpong-Boateng said.
The renowned heart surgeon, who was one of 17 presidential hopefuls that tried to succeed President Kufuor in the NPP’s 2007 primaries, was middling about his political future but however said he can’t be ruled out in the race for the flagbearership slot of the NPP ahead of the 2016 elections.
