Saaka Salia, the man who lodged a formal complaint to the CID for the two to be investigated said that the suspects disclosed that the Roads Minister was available for taking bribes, adding that they will do his bidding if he is able to give a certain amount of money.

When the president addressed the New Patriotic Party (NPP) national Delegates conference last week, he assured the nation that corrupt officials in his government will be investigated.

He was, however, quick to add that persons who make allegations of corruption against his officials should also be prepared to give evidence when called upon.
