President Goodluck Jonathan

The fight against corruption has assumed a new dimension in Ghana as President John Mahama has sacked the Deputy Minister of Communications, Victoria Hammah,  for allegedly making a statement that suggested that she could be corrupt. Although Hammah had not carried out the intention credited to her in the said tape, she was fired nonetheless. In the tape circulating online, she appears to have said, “If you have money, then you can control people.”

On Thursday, a taped conversation that Hammah had with someone, in which she allegedly said she would not leave politics until she had made $1m, leaked. By Friday, she was sacked by the government.

This is coming at a time that Nigerians are impatiently awaiting a decisive step by President Goodluck Jonathan over the role of the Aviation Minister, Stella Oduah, in the purchase of two armoured vehicles at a mind-boggling cost of about N255m.
