I’m Not Responsible For Punishing Corrupt Appointees-Nana Akufo-Addo

President of Ghana Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has said that it is not his responsibility to make sure his appointees involved in corrupt scandals get punished.

“Building a culture of integrity for generations” to commemorate International Anti-Corruption Day and Human Rights Day in Accra on ernment has undertaken, arguably, the boldest initiative since our nation attained independence nearly 65 years ago, to reform and strengthen the capacity of our institutions to tackle corruption in the public sector”, he stated while speaking at national conference.

Charity, they say, begins at home; and, that is why, so far, every single alleged act of corruption levelled against any of my appointees has been investigated by independent bodies such as the Commission for Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), Criminal Investigations Department (CID) and, in some cases, by Parliament itself”,

“It is not my job to clear or convict any person accused of wrongdoing or of engaging in acts of corruption; that is the job of the courts”, he added.
