President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has stated that he will under no circumstance jail any of his appointees based on hearsay.
According to him, he will only jail his 'corrupt' appointees based on strong glaring evidence.
Akufo-Addo said mere allegations against some of his appointees will not be enough to open criminal proceedings against them.
There have been countless allegations leveled against president Akufo-Addo for letting some of his corrupt appointees go scot free.
Most of his appointees have been accused either of property grabbing within a short period of time, engaging in galamsey activities, as well as engaging in aiding and abetting of crime.
“....“I’ll, however, not act on hearsay or mere allegations without more. I will not hesitate to act, though, when the evidence is hard before the police and I would do so irrespective of the standing of the person or persons involved,” Akufo-Addo said.
