According to reports, the new president of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, outrightly rejected a GH¢500,000 Christmas Hamper offered to him by an unnamed corporate organization.
This sharply contrasts with the out-gone president of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama, who made headlines after it was revealed that he had accepted a "Ford Explorer" gift from a contractor.
The insight into Nana Addo's hamper offer and subsequent rejection was made by the New Patriotic Party's firebrand and MP for Assin Central Constituency, Kennedy Ohene Agyepong.
Mr. Agyepong was speaking with an Accra-based TV station when he spoke of the December 23rd incident.

“On the 23rd of December, a company paid the then president-elect a visit to wish him well ahead of the yuletide where they dropped the said amount but he rejected”, he revealed.
This according to him, this goes to give credence to the fact that the president is poised to fight corruption in society and will go all out to hunt all those who may engage in underhand dealings.
Nana Addo has been preaching a way on corruption during the campaign buildup to the 2016 General Elections and reiterated this during his inaugural on 7th January, 2017.
He sent a warning to his executives and the nation that "If your goal in coming into government is to enrich yourself, then doesn’t come. Go to the private sector. Public service is going to be exactly that; public service!"
