Former state officials under the erstwhile John Mahama government, penciled to be prosecuted, have held a secret meeting to discuss how to get over their imminent prosecution, todaygh.com reports.
According to the report, their action come after the current government warned that any official from the former administration found to be corrupt will be made to face the law.
In an interview with Citi FM, the deputy Minister of Justice and Attorney General, Joseph Kpemka, disclosed that latest by October prosecution will begin, as in line with president Akufo-Addo’s campaign message of fighting corruption.
Todaygh.com reports that from their investigations, those believed to have been caught up in the upcoming prosecution held a secret meeting in the Volta Region to plan on how to counter the move by government.
The report further claims that at the said meeting held by erstwhile National Democratic Congress (NDC) members was in order to devise a number of strategies which would prevent them from being arrested and subjected to prosecution.
A source close to the party is quoted as saying that “they will be bussing our supporters from all the regions down to Accra anytime anyone of them will be invited by either the CID or EOCO for investigation, so as to create tension in the country.”
Todaygh.com again reports that plans are being made to get some journalists on their side, who will portray government’s actions as witch-hunting in the eyes of the public.
The report listed a number of prominent persons in the erstwhile NDC government to be up for prosecution, including MP for Bawku Central Mahama Ayariga and the NDC’s National Organiser Kofi Adams, among others.
