The president has been called on to withdraw the nomination of the Minister of Tourism and Culture designate Catherine Afeku.
The call was made a group called Truth and Accountable Governance.
The group is alleging that Afeku is a fraudster and as such does not deserve to be named minister.
A press statement released to the media said: “Mrs Catherine Afeku and her husband Mr Seth Afeku were found guilty for defrauding American couples on 19-10-2013 by an Accra High Court presided over by Her Lordship Barbara Ackah-Yensu. The trial judge directed the former MP for Evalue-Gwira Constituency Mrs Afeku and her husband Mr Afeku to pay an amount of $ 217,464.00 plus 50% interest to the plaintiffs, Patricia and Bill Gick.”

“We also believe that Private Investors both Local and International will not have confidence and trust in the sector if an alleged fraudster is allowed to hold that office. H.E Akufo-Addo being a Lawyer and an anti-corruption campaigner, should have known better. We are calling on him to immediately revoke the appointment of Mrs Catherine Afeku as Minister of Tourism designate if he wants Ghanaians to believe in his willingness to fight corrupt officials.”
