Hopeson Adorye, a leading member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has claimed President Akufo-Addo funded the master’s program of former president John Dramani Mahama in Russia.
Speaking on Net2 TV, he insisted Akufo-Addo was well-to-do before coming into power and therefore cannot be corrupt; adding that former president John Agyekum Kufuor is aware he (Akufo-Addo) funded Mahama’s master’s degree in Russia.
“They should ask John Mahama about the person who funded his masters in Russia. You have no idea. When former President Mahama was going to undertake a masters course in Russia, Akufo-Addo gave him money. First time I said this, former President Kufuor was surprised and asked where I got the information. I told him, we know everything. He was shocked. They should ask him.
“The man (Akufo-Addo) is self-made. This is someone who had three family members in the ‘Big Six’ so what can you show him? They are the ones who contributed to bring Nkrumah to serve as General Secretary of the UGCC,” he said.
