President Akufo-Addo has called on the diplomatic community in Ghana to report any of his appointees who engage in acts of corruption in their official dealings with them or with their offices.
According to him, reporting such cases would help in getting rid of the canker rather than making generalised pronouncements on corruption.
Accorsing to a ClassFM report, the President made this known when he addressed the diplomatic corps at the annual Meet & Greet and Diplomatic Reception held at the Peduase Lodge, Aburi on Tuesday, January 28, 2020.

"Should you, members of diplomatic corps be notified of any evidence of corruption against any of my appointees, I insist that they be shared with my office to enable action to be taken on the matter.
That is better for our relations than unspecified generalised pronouncements on corruption", President Akufo-Addo said.
President Akufo-Addo indicated that it is a matter of public record that twenty-one officials of the previous administration are standing trial over their involvement in alleged acts of corruption or causing financial loss to the state.
President Akufo-Addo however hinted at two officials or appointees of his government who are currently facing investigations. He did not, however, mention names.
