I’ve never intervened in Cecilia Dapaah’s case; OSP is independent – Akufo-Addo

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has said he has never gotten involved in the current investigation against Cecilia Abena Dappah, the former Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources.

Speaking on Thursday at the Jubilee House in Accra during the opening of the review of Ghana’s National Anti-Corruption Action Plan, President Akufo-Addo stated that the executive branch never gets involved in any probes involving his appointees.

“No evidence or allegation has been forthcoming that the executive has made any attempt to influence the outcome of any of these investigations. The latest episode involving the former Minister for Sanitation, the Honourable Cecilia Abena Dapaah, is evident for all to see.

“I am not aware of any government in the Fourth Republic subjecting so many of its officials to such investigations and enquiries.”

“At the same time, several officials in the previous Mahama administration such as William Matthew Tetteh Tevi, Alhaji Salifu Osman, and Eugene Baffour Bonney in the $ 4 million NCA’s scandal have been tried and convicted of various corruption-related offences and several other including Dr Stephen Opuni, the former CEO of COCOBOD and the Honourable Cassiel Ato Forson, the Minority Leader are standing trial as we speak,” he said.
