A leading member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Gabby Otchere-Darko has responded to the invitation extended to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo by Fiifi Kwetey to go to Nogokpo and swear to the deity to prove that he is not corrupt.
The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) dared President Akufo-Addo to submit himself to traditional deity to prove his innocence in a matter in which he is alleged to have received $40,000 as bribe from an individual ostensibly to influence his office.
The party said the president has over the last four years hidden behind Christian rhetoric to defraud the state by superintending over dozens of corruption scandals.
Addressing a press conference in Accra on Tuesday, December 2 to present what the party says are incontrovertible evidence of the president engaged in bribe-taking, former Deputy Finance Minister and MP for Ketu South Fiifi Kwetey said the latest revelation confirms his party’s long held view that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) was only deceiving Ghanaians while it parades itself as a saint fighting corruption.
Let’s go to Nogokpo if you are not corrupt – Fiifi Kwetey to Akufo-Addo | Yes. He was a cabinet minister under John Mahama and probably penciled in as finance minister in the event of a Mahama victory. Just as well it is not likely! https://t.co/UG46Iyw9eO
