Akua Gaddafi, the first Ghanaian policewoman to ride across four West African countries in a day, has said she has never received a bribe in her profession.
The hardworking officer made this revelation during an interview with Ato Kwamina and Frema Adunyame on Citi TV's lifestyle variety show, Upside Down, according to Mordernghana.com.
In her own words, when Akua was asked whether she has ever indulged in any of such practices, she explained and questioned it, “Not at all; why would I take a bribe; for what? What is the reason behind me taking that bribe you are talking about?”
Furthermore, Akua Gaddafi proclaimed that she has never witnessed any police officer in Ghana take a bribe and therefore considers it a rumour that officers accept bribes.
“I have been hearing these rumours going on but I don't think it is true because I haven't seen it before; a police personnel taking bribe, I have never seen it before,” she said.
Akua Gaddafi currently works at the Criminal Investigation Department of the Ghana Police Service but is assigned to the Formed Police Unit of the institution.
