Founder and leader of Ghana Freedom Party (GFP) is asking President Akufo-Addo to resign having been mentioned in the latest exposé of investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
According to Akua Donkor, the President allegedly embroiled in a bribery scandal has brought the name of the presidency into disrepute.
President Akufo-Addo’s integrity as an incorruptible leader has been questioned after the President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) was caught in an investigative piece by Anas using the name of the president and the vice president to solicit money from prospective investors.
Unknown to Mr. Nyantakyi, the supposed investors were undercover journalists who captured his conversation and conduct.
After watching part of the video in which his name was mentioned by Kwesi Nyantakyi and upon denying ever receiving the monies purported to have been given in his name, the President reported the matter to the police.
Though the Anas’ video dubbed Number 12 is centered on football administrators, referees, footballers, it has taken a political twist when the case of influence peddling was introduced.
Speaking in an interview on Kumas-based Nhyira FM Thursday, Madam Akua Donkor said given the evidence adduced, President Akufo-Addo must step down.
She claimed, Kwesi Nyantakyi had the permission of the President to use his name to solicit for monies from prospective investors.
“Kwesi Nyantakyi is being sacrificed just to cover up for the President. They are very good friends so I believe President Akufo-Addo is corrupt”.
The failed Presidential candidate could not fathom why President Akufo-Addo will sack some judges based on Anas’ investigations but he is still in office after being implicated in a similar manner.
Akua Donkor called on President Akufo-Addo to resign to prevent the embarrassment of impeachment in future.
