General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketsia says the root cause of corruption in Ghana is nothing but the cost of people getting elected to high public offices in Ghana.

According to him, the cost associated with people getting to elected positions has increased to an intolerable level that’s threatening the survival of Ghana’s democracy and the suffering of the masses.

Speaking at a consultative forum of the Department of Peace and Development Studies at the University of Cape Coast, the NDC General Secretary indicated the more the country’s politics becomes monetised, the more merit is sacrificed.

He’s calling on the academic community in Ghana to undertake researches aimed at cleaning the country’s politics and saving Ghana’s democracy.

He also spoke about what he calls charlatans who are parading as religious people that are threatening politicians and everybody in the country.
