Two government officials are under investigation for acts of corruption, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has revealed.
He said if the two are found guilty they will face the full rigours of the law.
The president did not, however, mention the names of these appointees.
He made this known on Tuesday, January 28, when he met members of the diplomatic corps at this year’s New Year Greeting and Diplomatic Reception held at the Peduase Lodge.
He dismissed assertions that he shields – popularly tagged ‘clearing’ by the opposition – appointees accused of corruption.
“Again, every single alleged act of corruption levelled against any of my appointees is being or has been investigated by independent bodies such as CHRAJ, CID and in some cases by Parliament itself.”
He indicated that none of these investigative bodies have accused the government of influencing the processes.
“Due process will be scrupulously maintained,” he assured.
President Akufo-Addo also called on members of the diplomatic corps to share with his office any notifications of corruption that they get “to enable action to be taken on the matter that bodes better for our relationship than unspecified generalised allegations on corruption”.
