“Those who have stolen money or done something wrong, they should be disciplined and that is why I am happy that Akufo-Addo has set up the Special Prosecutor Office and appointed a very difficult man; it is very good.”

“It is not every politician who is a criminal… some may be, some may not be, so, we cannot tag everyone that: ‘you are criminals’; it is not good for this country,” he added.
