Expressing surprise, Deputy Minority Leader James Klutse Avedzi said the president must explain his perceived shift in his position after using Jospong-linked scandals to campaign about fighting corruption if elected.
Nana Akufo-Addo remarked that ‘you have been the subject of controversies…it goes with the territory” and then laughed, adding “I know you are capable of handling the controversies”.
The Minority has stated that these comments confirm their long-held belief that the president was simply doing politics after he led his party to scream corruption when scandals like GYEEDA, SUBAH and SADA broke between 2013 and 2015.
In all these scandals, Jospong Group of Companies was heavily linked.
In 2015 while addressing students of the University of Cape Coast in the Central region, the NPP presidential candidate mentioned GYEEDA as one of the top three scandals.
Akufo-Addo said the ¢1.8 billion dissipated in these scandals is more than the $912million IMF bail-out the NDC government went for.
Processing the pre-election and post-election comments around Jospong Group, the Deputy Minority leader James Avedzi said;
“It means that all that he [Akufo-Addo] said in the past were all not true; he probably said all that because of politics”.
