Founder of the Ghana Freedom Party (GFP), Akua Donkor has sued President Nana Akufo-Addo and Vice-President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia in court.
The failed presidential candidate is asking for an order to President Akufo-Addo to step aside following Anas’ expose’ on football corruption in Ghana.
Speaking on Adom FM’s Midday News Tuesday, Akua Donkor believes there is more to the documentary than meets the eye. The farmer said, there is proof that the claims made by Kwesi Nyantakyi are true.
It will be recalled that President Akufo-Addo reported the former President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi to the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service, for defrauding by false pretences and influence peddling.
Nana Akufo-Addo ordered the CID to arrest Mr Nyantakyi after being privy to investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ Number 12 undercover documentary, which exposed the GFA president as using the name of the president for influence peddling.
But Akua Donkor referred to comments allegedly made by Mr. Nyantakyi that Chinese nationals ‘saw their way through Ghana to do their investments through the payment of bribes”.
The suit dated 20 June 2018 filed at the Supreme Court, which names Attorney General and Minister for Justice Gloria Akuffo as the defendant said;
“It is perfectly true that Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the President of the Republic of Ghana and the Vice-President are involved or have something to do with all the allegations levelled against Kwesi Nyantakyi with regard to bribing before contracts are awarded to investors”.
The political party leader argued, the fact that Chinese investors are working in Ghana is proof that the claims are true.
Akua Donkor wants a full-scale investigation into issues raised in the documentary before the president and his vice can go on with their work.
The writ, filed on June 20, 2018 will require the Attorney-General to respond within eight days after receiving the court processes. Madam Donkor said she intends to represent herself in court.
