'Go for mentoring' comments: GII apologises to Prez Mahama

The Ghana Integrity Initiative has unreservedly apologised to President John Mahama for asking him to go for mentoring from the presidents of Nigeria and Tanzania on how to deal with corruption in the country.

In a statement issued Wednesday to mark International Anti-Corruption Day, the GIA said: ” “GII wishes to appeal to President John Dramani Mahama to turn to President Muhammudu Buhari and President John Magufuli for mentoring and act more swiftly to curb corruption in this country”.

But in a latest statement issued Thursday, the GII said the use of the word “mentoring”  was “inappropriate” and consequently apologised to President Mahama and the people of Ghana, adding ” GII wishes to withdraw that entire sentence from the Press Release”

Signed by its Executive Director, Vitus Adaboo Azeem, the GII said it did not in any way intend to “denigrate the President and should not be seen in that light. We sincerely call on all Ghanaians to avoid using this error to divert the import of the Press Release which calls on the President to use all his powers to “BREAK THE CORRUPTION CHAIN”.
