What Will Paul Adom-Otchere Say In Cecilia Dapaah's Defense About The $1 Million Theft?

Feature Article What Will Paul Adom-Otchere Say In Cecilia Dapaah's Defense About The 1 Million Theft?
SAT, 22 JUL 2023 LISTEN

Paul Adom-Otchere is a well-known state-sponsored journalist on Akufo Addo's payroll who defends, aids, and abets crimes under the NPP regime. He is known to be a law student who didn't graduate as a lawyer because he failed to be one. In addition to defending the corruption of Kwadzo Owusu Afriyie, aka Sir John, and Eugene Arhin, the president's director of communication, he also justified the extramarital affair between Akufo Addo and the Ghanaian-Canadian nurse, calling the lady a criminal.

It's time for me to ask Paul Adom-Otchere, how the corrupt journalist who inflated the price of Christmas trees for decoration, will defend Sanitation Minister Cecilia Dapaah, now that two of her housekeepers are accused of stealing millions of Ghanaian cedis, $300,000, and $1 million from her Abelenkpe, Accra, home in October 2023. (I want to call readers' attention to this publication's inaccuracy, although we are in July 2023, the alleged theft occurred in October 2023.)

Ghanaians are eagerly awaiting Paul Adom-Otchere's response to the Sanitation Minister's 1 million dollar theft since he has been defending all NPP politicians who have been involved in serious corruption offenses.

In Ghana, history is repeating itself, but unlike the time when colonial powers fought over Africa, this time the NPP politicians are stealing the state's resources and squabbling over its property since they know the government will not succeed in remaining in power until 2024. One of the major reasons Ghana's infrastructure has crumbled with huge debt and no accountability is that Ghana is losing millions yearly, ever since Akufo Addo was elected president nearly seven years ago.

A government should have a good reason for failing, but the NPP administration's demise was caused by pervasive, chronic corruption rather than the COVID or the Russia-Ukraine conflict, as they want Ghanaians to believe. Since corruption affects everyone in the lower classes, Ghanaians should remind Akufo Addo, Richard Ahiagba, or other NPP politicians that they can’t blame COVID for the failure of the economy, and of both domestic and foreign investment, without mentioning the enormous amount of COVID funds stolen.

Akufo Addo has known for a very long time that he has failed and that the majority of Ghanaians have rejected the entire government. In light of this, he is aware that the party will not be able to maintain power past 2024. That’s why on two occasions Akufo Addo asserted that "He will do everything in his power to secure the NPP victory," then followed the recent treacherous comment by Bryan Acheampong that "The NPP will never hand over power to the NDC.

As I've previously stated in most of my articles, Akufo Addo never decided to control or prosecute anyone for corruption under his administration, promising to fight corruption was the easiest statement to win the trust of the people, so Ghanaians shouldn't underestimate the impact of corruption in his administration, which has led to the collapse of the economy, businesses, and domestic and foreign investments.

It will be noted that the lengthy list of assets appeared in the divorce papers filed by Eugene Arhin's wife after she had a misunderstanding with the Director of Communications for the President of Ghana. His properties include a five-bedroom house intended to serve as the couple's matrimonial home, which is located on two lots of land in East Legon, Accra. He also owns a house that is currently being built that will eventually have sixteen separate apartments in Tuba-Weija, Accra, and another house that will have apartments in Teshie, Accra. After a brief career in politics, where did Arhin get this money?

Many NPP politicians have seized the chance to plunder public coffers as a result of Akufo Addo's failure to prosecute any corrupt politicians. He demonstrated again after giving a directive to the Special Prosecutor to unfreeze the assets of the late corrupt NPP politician known as Sir John. How could the minister of sanitation have so much cash at home? What's more, where did she acquire the cash? Do Ghanaians realize how much money the NPP politicians have secretly stolen?

I am very sure that the majority of Ghanaians, and probably not just me, are anxiously waiting for criminal-defending journalist Paul Adom-Otchere, over what he is going to say about the financial crime against Cecilia Dapaah. How long can Ghanaians endure witnessing such events? I am too smart to put my trust in politicians that aspire to be president yet have wrecked Ghana. Only those who require psychiatric intervention will vote for Kyerematen, Akoto, or Bawumia since they are all useless.
