President Akufo-Addo has said that so far there has not been any serious evidence of corruption against his appointees.
The president made this revelation at the African Investment Forum 2018 which was held in South Africa recently.
According to him, members of his administration will be subjected to thorough scrutiny if found culpable of corrupt practices, but that will not be anytime soon because so far, his appointees have acted as ‘angel’s without any corrupt tags on them.
However, Akufo-Addo’s claim has angered some Ghanaians on social media who believe he is just deceiving them.
Some have given examples of corruption in his government, with the recent case being that of the Ghana Maritime Authority CEO and allegations made by former GFA president, Kwesi Nyantakyi, in the Anas "No. 12" video.
For instance, commenting on the Facebook page of your authoritative YEN.com.gh, a Facebook user, John Makarty, questioned if the president has been able to do something about the Maritime CEO:
Yusif also wondered if Akufo-Addo has been brave enough to prosecute Kwei Nyantakyi after Anas' investigative piece and FIFA' s lifetime ban:
Apart from the concerns that have been raised by the Ghanaians above, others, who also felt disappointed in the president for saying there has no been any serious evidence of corruption against his appointees, have warned him about his chances in election 2020.

Ezekiel also asked the president and his 'angelic' appointees to wait for elections 2020:

Musah also cried that for Akufo-Addo to make that statement, it means he does not fear God:
Meanwhile, in an earlier report by YEN.com.gh, some Ghanaians registered their displeasure with president Akufo-Addo following the increase in the price of sachet water ('pure water').
Also, a media person, Caroline Samson has said in plain terms that she has regretted voting for Akufo-Addo.
