I Dare You To Prove My Appointees Are Corrupt – Akufo-Addo
President Akufo-Addo has challenged those accusing his appointees of being corrupt to prove with incontrovertible evidence.
He said a year on, it has become evident that none of his appointees is corrupt in spite of machinations to prove otherwise.
Addressing Parliament in his second State of the Nations Address Thursday, President Akufo- Addo said he is elated about the conduct of his appointees.
“It is important to note that, in my first year of office, despite having a clear parliamentary majority, two separate bi-partisan probes in Parliament have been established to inquire into allegations of corruption, as against zero in recent years, notwithstanding the persistent calls by the then Minority over several allegations”.
“So far, every single alleged act of corruption leveled against any of my appointees has been investigated by independent bodies, and, in some cases, by Parliament itself, and the findings made public.
In furtherance of these principles, I have made it publicly known that anyone, who has information about acts of corruption by any of my appointees, should bring it forward, and should be prepared to back it up with evidence, for I will have it investigated” President Akufo-Addo dared.
