The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has accused President Nana Akufo-Addo of being the biggest enabler and promoter of corruption in Ghana.
National Communications Officer of the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi, at a press conference Monday said Mr Akufo-Addo’s handling of the BOST corruption scandal smacks of grand collusion and cover-up of epic proportions.
“The fact that till date no one is standing prosecution for this pungent corruption scandal which has caused the nation huge financial losses, bears Akufo-Addo out as the biggest enabler and promoter of corruption”.
Mr Gyamfi added, “five (5) million liters of fuel was contaminated at the premises of the state-owned Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company (BOST) by the mixture of diesel and petrol, and sold to unlicensed companies namely, Movenpina and Zup Oil under dubious circumstances”.
“Ironically, this is a man who rode on the back of an anti-corruption campaign into office, promising not to tolerate or countenance same under his administration. However, after being elected into office, he has normalized corruption and made it very attractive in his government. He has defended and cleared his corrupt appointees of several grievous corrupt acts against the state such as the BOSTGATE scandal”, Mr Gyamfi said.
