Member of Parliament for Assin Central Kennedy Agyapong has accused the deputy Chiefs of Staff at the FlagStaff House abusing their positions, accusing them engaging in some corrupt practices.
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) member has, in recent, times been attacking members of his own party, who he believes have involved themselves in dubious acts at the Presidency.
According to him, Samuel Abu Jinapor and Francis Asenso-Boakye – who both serve of Chiefs of Staff – are just two of the many corrupt appointees of President Akufo-addo.
He urged the president to open his eyes in order to see the corrupt practices which some of his appointees were using their positions for.
He particularly alleged that both Abu Jinapor and Asenso-Boakye were demanding for money from investors before agreeing to let them see the president.
Speaking on Oman FM, the Assin Central MP said: "I was there and these same people called me back to tell me that they wanted to have access to the president and they were asked to pay $20,000 there about before a meeting can be arranged between them and the president, why should it be so?".
He added that “Abu Jinapor and Asenso-Boakye are not the only two alleged to be involved in corrupt activities at the presidency, they are many others as well”.
The MP’s outbursts and accusations have led to a call from the Ghana Integrity Initiative (GII) requesting that President Akufo-Addo opens an immediate investigation into the matter.
