Twitter users have reacted en masse to the conviction of Abuga Pele, a former Coordinator of Ghana Youth Employment and Entrepreneurial Development Agency (GYEEDA) and a Member of Parliament for Chiana-Paga, and Philip Assibit, a business man.

He was sentenced to six years imprisonment on two counts of abetted crime of defrauding by false pretence. Mr Assibit was also sentenced to 12 years imprisonment on five counts of defrauding by false pretence.

Lawyers for Assibit have served notice they will appeal his conviction, accusing the prosecution of hiding documents that could have freed his client.
