The minority leader in Parliament, Haruna Iddrisu, has expressed shock at comments made by President Akufo-Addo regarding the prosecution of some appointees under the Mahama administration.
According to him, the president’s statement suggesting the prosecution of 21 appointees of the erstwhile Mahama administration was ‘laughable’.
Haruna Iddrisu was speaking to a section of the media after escorting Member of Parliament for Bawku Central, Mahama Ayariga, to court, following a summon by a court as a subject of prosecution by the Office of the Special Prosecutor.
“I heard the president speaking far away from Canada or somewhere in his many foreign trips abroad saying that NDC persons have been lined up for prosecution.
What a significant and interesting statement to come from the president of the republic. So, it means that in the last three years he has been working with angels,” Iddrisu taunted.
Meanwhile some appointees under the incumbent NPP administration have been the subject of corrupt dealings but have either been cleared after investigations or are yet to be probed.
Sectors such as the communication ministry, health, tourism, among others have all been cited at some point within the last three years.
After several months of scrutiny and being undermined by some stakeholders in the country, Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, begun prosecution of some allegedly corrupt individuals following a leak of a list of officials from his outfit.
During a speech by President Akufo-Addo on fighting corruption during a visit to Canada, he revealed that 21 former officials of the opposition NDC-led government had been lined up for prosecution.
He assured Ghanaians living in Canada that his administration was on course to fighting corruption and that he was following due process.
