Ghana Integrity Initiative Apologizes To President Mahama

The Ghana Integrity Initiative has apologised to Ghana's President, John Dramani Mahama for the inappropriate use of the word "mentoring" in referring to him to seek mentorship from Nigeria’s Mahamadu Buhari and Tanzania’s John Magufuli in his fight against corruption in Ghana.According to the local chapter of Transparency International, “we wish to emphasize that the Press Release did not intend to denigrate the President and should not be seen in that light”.

In an apology statement, the GII said “the attention of the Board and Management of the Ghana Integrity Initiative has been drawn to the inappropriate use of the word, “mentoring” in the last paragraph of the Press release it issued yesterday to mark the International Anti-Corruption Day and wish to apologise unreservedly to His Excellency the President of the Republic of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama and, indeed, the people of this country for the use of the word.
