President Nana Akufo Addo has sought to absolve his family from the numerous corruption charges that have bogged him and his family.
For the first time, perhaps realizing how weightier and terribly smelly the corruption issues about his government are getting each passing day, he chose to rise to the defense of only his family, forgetting it is not any better.
Speaking at the annual Internal Audit Conference in Accra on Wednesday, 1 August 2018, relying on allegory to make his point, Mr Akufo-Addo said “I am aware that you give a dog a bad name in order to hang it, but this dog will not be hanged.”
In fairness to the reading public and for their own judgment, herein listed only 20 of the corruption cases already suffocating the supposed “dog’’ and again for them to decide what to do with the corrupt “dog.”
