He, however, said he is ready to look into any accusation of corruption against any of his appointee.

“I have made it publicly known that anyone, who has information about acts of corruption by any of my appointees, should bring it forward, and should be prepared to back it up with evidence, for I will have it investigated”, he said.

On the assumption of office, the government of Nana Addo has been bedeviled with some corruption accusations including the recent ‘Cash for Seats’ saga.

But the President said, “It is important to note that, in my first year of office, despite having a clear parliamentary majority, two separate bi-partisan probes in Parliament have been established and all came up with nothing.”
