Gov't Sets Akuffo Addo Free Over $4.9m Judgement Debt Investigation

Government has registered its resolve to refuse placing specific political officials including the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo under investigations over the payment of a 4.9 million dollar judgement debt as recommended by the judgement debt commission.

Snippets from government's  whitepaper on the commission’s report indicates that the Agric Ministry contracted Delta Foods Ltd. for the supply of 21,000 tons of American white maize in 1997 - all under  the watch of Nana Addo who was by then the Attorney General under the Kufuor administration. In fact, the judgement debt commission has revealed that  Nana Addo burdened government with the huge debt due to an unnecessary application his department filed at the Supreme Court.

Meanwhile, government in its white paper insists that if the Attorney-General’s Department is not to be sanctioned, going back 16 years to conduct an investigation to identify public officers to be sanctioned was needless - hence the need not for Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo to be placed under interrogation.
