Group petitions CID over Prof. Martey’s bribery allegation

A group calling itself Friends of National Unity (FONU) has petitioned the Criminal Investigations Department to investigate the conduct of Reverend Professor Emmanuel Martey and Dr. Osei Emmanuel Acheampong over the recent $100,000 bribery allegation.

The group earlier called for the arrest of the outgoing Presby Moderator and issued an ultimatum of which they will call for investigation into the matter.

‘This petition has become necessary considering the fact that as a young democratic nation it is our collective responsibility to uphold the principles of democratic governance in high esteem. It behooves on us as citizens to eschew from any negative practices that has the potential of undermining rule of law as enshrined in our 1992 constitution’

According to Prof. Martey, two politicians came to his residence when he was in office to induce him with the whopping sum as a way of gagging him from scolding the government.

The group believes such allegation cannot be swept under the carpet and has appealed to the CID to investigate the Man of God.
