An aide to former President John Dramani Mahama, Stan Xoese Dogbe believes that there is no need to investigate the Airbus bribery case which cited Ghana as one of the countries involved.
According to a Facebook post sighted by YEN.com.gh, shared by Stan Dogbe, he said it is not really necessary since Ghana did not actually lose any money.
His somehow sarcastic comment comes in reaction to President Akufo-Addo's referral of the matter to the Special Prosecutor to investigate the said Ghanaian government officials involved in the case.

Stan Dogbe indicated that the President should "rather investigate the nepotism-induced $24m tax waiver he [Akufo-Addo] gave to his in-law which will be at a cost to the taxpayer"
Stan Dogbe wrote: "Ha ha ha!! Finally, the SP [Special Prosecutor] will have some work to do."
"But please, Mr. Akufo-Addo, given that Gov’t of Ghana did not lose any money in this Airbus matter, and yet you are willing to attempt some so-called investigation, just asking, why wont you rather investigate the nepotism-induced $24m tax waiver you gave to your in-law which will be at a cost to the tax payer?" he added.
"The criminal PDS scandal involving your family and cronies is also still fresh in our minds ooo!" Mr Dogbe posted.
