The Executive Director of the Africa Centre for Health Policy and Research Analysis, Dr Thomas Anaba says President Akufo-Addo displays signs of ‘bipolar’ when it comes to issues of corruption within his government.
Speaking to Accra100.5FM’s mid-day news on Thursday, 12 August 2021, Dr Anaba told Ohenewaa Kesse Boahene (Gargantuan Lady) in an interview that: “Our president, looking at his behaviour, since he came to the Flagstaff House, toward corruption, he has displayed a bipolar attitude toward corruption”.
“In one vein, he is angry there is corruption and in another vein, he is not perturbed about corruption”, Dr Anaba observed.
“When it comes to issues pertaining to other people outside his family and friends, he’s quick to send them to court: Look at the way they chased Ayariga because of an ambulance; look at the way they chased Charlotte Osei because of procurement breaches”, Dr Anaba noted.
“Now, it is evident that there is misappropriation of money and there is a violation of the Constitution but the president is not seeing that. So, it means that anytime corruption-related charges or allegations are levelled against anybody close to him, then the president doesn’t see anything; that is why I say he’s suffering from what we call a bipolar attitude toward corruption and that is not good”, Dr Anaba added.
