I am aware of the orchestrated attempts by my opponents to hang the tag of corruption on the necks of my government and myself, despite all the manifest efforts being made to deal with the phenomenon of corruption,” Nana Addo said.

The President’s comment has sparked reactions from Ghanaians on social media, many of who believe the fight against corruption is a sham.
