The Flagbearer of the NPP, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has reiterated his commitment to fighting against corruption which he says is a major hindrance to national development.

Interacting with the Clergy in Cape Coast on Monday as part of his campaign tour of the Central Region, Dr Bawumia pledged to remain committed to fighting corruption citing his digitalization initiative as one of the significant ways he has used to prevent corruptible practices.

Dr Bawumia also noted that corruption can be fought by putting in place effective systems and not the usual lip service that some leaders pay to it.

"Corruption in the public space is a major canker against our development and the fight against it must continue. I have been a committed fighter against corruption and I am very committed to the fight against it."

"Corruption can be fought effectively through systems and I have been behind building digital systems which are aimed at averting corruption...That's the way to go, building systems to tackle corruption and I am very committed to it...The ghost names that have been wiped off the public payroll is an example of how putting in place systems fight corruption", Dr. Bawumia said.

Dr. Bawumia also assured the Clergy that, "as President, by the grace of God, I will also be more accountable to you because I will have the opportunity of seeking another term and I will come back to you and the Ghanaian people to account for my stewardship".

He added; "If I don't perform, you won't give me another opportunity, so I will work hard and deliver on my pledges so that I can come back and account to you...As for somebody, there will be no accountability because he will go on a honeymoon and you won't see him again."
