Mahama appointees will be jailed – Prophet predicts

Many appointees in the erstwhile Mahama administration will be jailed this year.

This was part of the 76 prophecies of Prophet Emmanuel Badu Kobi, leader of the Glorious Wave Church during the 31st watch night service in 2017.

His revelation comes on the back of President Akufo-Addo’s promise to prosecute corrupt officials under the Mahama administration.

The Mahama administration was rocked with a number of corruption scandals including the GHC3.2 million bus branding saga, GYEEDA and the Subah among others.

President Akufo-Addo during the 2016 election expressed his commitment to fight corruption by ensuring that persons indicted in these scandals under the previous administration face the law.

As part of efforts to implement this promise, the NPP administration introduced the idea of setting up the Special Prosecutor to deal with these cases.

The Special Prosecutor Bill which was laid before Parliament has since been passed, with the office expected to be operational soon.

Based on this, Prophet Badu Kobi revealed that, the Akufo-Addo led government has concluded work on dockets of some of the appointees deemed to have engaged in corrupt acts while in government.

Meanwhile, Former President John Dramani Mahama has asked members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to sympathize with former appointees of his administration who may be indicted in any corruption probe under the current government.

Speaking at the 31st December Revolution Anniversary held at Ho in the Volta Region, Mr. Mahama welcomed the move, asking party members to support colleagues who may be indicted.
