A former Executive Director of the Ghana Integrity Initiative (GII), Mr Vitus Azeem say President Akufo-Addo’s ‘incorruptible’ tag prior to the 2016 elections were mere political talk.
Mr Azeem was reacting to the way and manner President Akufo-Addo responded to calls to sack the under fire Health Minister Kwaku Agyeman-Manu over the botched Sputnik V deal.
He believed that Mr Akufo-Addo’s posture is a subtle endorsement of the action of his minister.
The president’s anticorruption credentials “ was just a political talk, he used it to deceive and he got our votes twice,” he said.
Speaking in the Bono region, the president said Mr Agyeman-Manu is currently suffering because he’s being slapped left, right, centre by Ghanaians.
“There are a lot of people from the Bono Region in my government; including the Minister of Health, who is currently receiving slaps [from Ghanaians]. He is an indigene of Dormaa. He has really suffered in that Health Ministry and is still suffering,” he said amid laughter.
