The National Democratic Congress Chairman, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, has said he does not expect justice to prevail in the corruption scandal surrounding former sanitation minister Cecilia Dapaah.

Nketiah feels this case will end up like other notable corruption allegations against the Akufo-Addo administration, which have not led to any prosecutions.

This trend has led President Nana Akufo-Addo to be dubbed the "clearing agent".

Speaking on Okay FM, Nketiah said he expected Dapaah to benefit from such leniency.
