An activist of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr. Baah Acheamfour has taken on President Akufo-Addo claiming the latter is the one leading the many corruption cases in his government despite his dissociation.

“Nana Addo started the corruption while in opposition and has brought it into government so I am not surprised about the level of corruption today”, the ardent critic of the President said on ‘Me Man Nti’ evening political talk show on ‘Kumasi FM’ hosted by Nana Yaw Mensah Joel monitored by

According to Mr. Baah Acheamfour, who described himself as good outstanding member of the NPP, then-candidate Nana Akufo-Addo in opposition superintended over corruption in party which led to the suspension of some national executives of the party at the time.

“Paul Afoko, Kwabena Agyapong and Sammy Crabbe were all suspended from the party at the time Nana Akufo-Addo was our flagbearer when they started to speak against corruption in party”, Mr. Baah Acheamfour bemoaned urging Ghanaians not to relent in the fight against corruption.

Meanwhile, the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has denied claims that he was shielding corrupt officials within his government.
