President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will be remembered in the
political annals of this country when his tenure elapses as only being
good at clearing his corrupt ‘appointees’ who are neck-deep in one
scandal to another, Donkor Fuseini has asserted.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) former appointee disclosed on
Kumasi-based Nhyira Fm monitored by MyNewsGh.com that the President time
without number has demonstrated his support for corruption involving
his appointees by failing to crack the whip and hide under committees
and commissions to let such persons off the hook.
He cites findings from the cash for seats and contaminated fuel saga at
BOST as some of the examples revealing the current government has failed
to demonstrate its commitment towards fighting corruption as promised
in the run up to the 2016 polls.
“Ever since Akufo-Addo became President, what he is good at is that if
his Minister or any of his appointee engages in any corrupt act, he is
good at clearing such a person. I am fully convinced that if his
Minister of State in Charge of National Security is indicted in the
Commission of Inquiry for deploying terrorists to engage violent acts,
he will be cleared. They are delaying the publicity of the report
because they want to ensure that any appointee who is culpable is
cleared”, the former District Chief Executive (DCE) of Sekyere Afram
Plains in the Ashanti Region alleged.
Meanwhile, Director of Communications for the New Patriotic Party (NPP),
Yaw Buabeng Asamoah has mocked the opposition National Democratic
Congress (NDC) for demanding the publication of the report by the Emile
Short Commission, set by the President to investigate the circumstances
that led to the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election violence in January.
According to him, the party has no justification to ask for the report
because it boycotted it as the onset and debarred its members not to
appear before the commission.
