The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has challenged President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to appear before a deity to prove his innocence over the alleged $40,000 as bribe from an individual ostensibly to influence his office.
Addressing a press conference on Wednesday, December 2, 2020, former Deputy Finance Minister and MP for Ketu South Fiifi Kwetey said the latest revelation confirms his party’s long held view that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) was only deceiving Ghanaians while it parades itself as a saint fighting corruption.
“I come from Nogokpo in the Volta Region and a few of you know Nogokpo, you dare not lie.
“If President Akufo-Addo actually says he is not corrupt, let him come with me to Nogokpo and see whether he can lie there, he will not.
“Because in the name of this ‘Holy and Holy’, he can swear in the Bible and lie because there is no fear.
“When it is that you know that you cannot escape, you will not be able to lie and we will be able to establish that to you that all the things you are going to see the man,” he said.
