'My wife won’t distribute contracts in my administration'

The flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has said his wife- Rebecca Akufo-Addo- would not be in charge of the distribution of contracts under his administration.

Nana Addo, addressing party supporters at the party’s fundraising event organized in the Ashanti Region, assured the party’s supporters that he will superintend over a transparent administration that will not give room for his wife to be distributing contracts in the country.

“My wife would not be in charge of the distribution of contracts in this country…she would never distribute contracts in the country…,” he assured.

Nana Addo also told the gathering that he will ensure a prudent use of the country’s resources when voted into power.

He said like Ivoirian President Alassane Ouatarra; he will channel the nation’s resources into productive sectors of the economy.

“I won’t operate a family and friends government in Ghana, and I can assure that every person in the country would have his fair share of the national cake…,” he said.

He, therefore, urged the people to ‘have confidence in me and entrust the nation’s resources into my care for efficient use.’
