The statement also impugned the integrity of President Akufo-Addo by saying: “Former President Mahama, unlike President Nana Akufo-Addo, is incorruptible. He, therefore, welcomes the said petition and expects the Special Prosecutor who the petitioners claim is the originator and source of the false and dubious claims, to expeditiously commence its work.”

Yesterday, the former President was cited in a petition to investigate the use of the funds by a civil society group to the Special Prosecutor Martin Amidu.

The statement also said the allegations started from Martin Amidu and therefoore it cannot be taken serious because he Amidu at his vetting to become Special Prosecutor confessed that he cannot substantiate some of these allegations when he was writing as Citizen Vigilante.
