The former Minister for Sanitation and Water Resources, Cecilia Dapaah, resigned, and President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo accepted her resignation in a letter, according to Ghana Integrity Initiative (GII), which indicates “the tag on him as clearing agent has been reaffirmed.”
Cecilia Dapaah was commended by President Akufo-Addo in his letter of acceptance for her resignation for her dedication to upholding the good name of his administration.
“Like you, I’m sure your integrity while in office will be thoroughly established by the time things are all said and done.” President Akufo-Addo said.
According to Mary Addah, the acting executive director of the Ghana Integrity Initiative (GII), whomever advised the President or wrote the letter should be extremely embarrassed of themselves. She made this statement when appearing on Morning Starr with Francis Abban.
We all believe that the President is a lawyer, therefore I think they should all be reconsidering when the President expresses such confidence in the outcome of the case that he is now certain that the accused will be cleared.
Why does the President say, “Like you, I am certain that your honesty while in government will be thoroughly confirmed in the end.” and what knowledge does he possess that we do not that is causing this? Mary Addae enquired.
Second, why did the President accept the former minister’s resignation if he is so confident as he claims to be in this letter in answer to her? she asked. As a result, he had a choice between doing nothing and intervening to support the work of the investigating agencies.
Madam Addah went on to inquire as to how there was so much money in the minister’s residence, saying that President Akufo-Addo ought to have considered everything before “I believe this warrant clearing her was issued.”
Sadly, whomever wrote this letter got it incorrect, but the President’s signature is on it. The President continues to act in this manner, as he has in the past, and his status as a clearing agent has been confirmed. The GII boss reaffirmed in this particular letter.
