The government says the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has no basis to describe President Nana Akufo-Addo as a clearing agent.
According to Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, every allegation levelled against an appointee of President Nana Akufo-Addo has been investigated by relevant state institutions and the appropriate recommendations later presented to the President.
He said the Akufo-Addo government has rather over the last two and a half years, acted to correct the fundamentals of the Ghanaian economy, which, prior to his assumption of office, were in disarray.
“If the NDC is describing Akufo-Addo as a clearing agent, I can tell you some of the things the president has cleared to the betterment of the country are; the huge debts the NDC left, he has cleared some nurses who have been recruited, people have been recruited into NABCO. All these things are helping to shape the economy and not what the NDC is alleging,” he said.
Mr Nkrumah was speaking on Adom FM’s morning show ‘Dwaso Nsem‘, Monday.
His comment comes on the back of various corrupt activities that directly involve some appointees within the administration of Nana Akufo-Addo, the latest being the Power Distribution Services (PDS) scandal.
Mr Nkrumah noted that, the reports coming out are in bits and pieces and that they do not represent the true reflection of what is being discussed on social media.
He explained that there is a comprehensive report about PDS and that the government will come out in due time to explain the details of the PDS report.
