A group calling itself Strategic Thinkers Network-Africa (STRANEK), a policy think tank whose focus is on corruption, governance and security is calling on H. E. Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo to speak on allegations made against him in the Anas #12 exposé.
According to STRANEK, the allegations are so damning and put the office of the President into disrepute.
In a release signed by the group’s Executive Director, Nii Tettey Tetteh, it says although the rot at the Ghana Football Association (GFA) is quite troublesome, the allegations about the President is worrisome.
It further states that ”it is trite knowing that guards were not over the mouth of the GFA President leading him to say things which meant that he was really informed about the operations and private life of H. E. the President.”
According to STRANEK, ”is it true the President sold all his properties in order to finance his campaign as alleged in the exposé?”
The group is also asking ”if it is true, how many properties did he sell?”
”Is it true efforts are being made to recoup the properties as alleged in the exposé and how is the President going to do that?” they further asked.
According to the group, Prez Akufo Addo has promised to protect the public purse, and therefore wish to remind him of the guarantee and assurance Ghanaians need from him on his fight against corruption in these dark days of the #12 exposé.
The group indicated that a mere denial is not enough to excuse him from the allegations.
”He must address the people of Ghana and cause all parties mentioned in the allegations to face the full rigors of law as his integrity is at stake,” they demanded.
STRANEK appealed for a bill to be passed that will fund political parties and prevent them from spending beyond a certain limit as it is done in the United Kingdom, Sweden and other countries.
