Sammy Gyamfi, has said President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo must speak on the accusation that he took a bribe of GH¢40,000.
Speaking at a press conference in Accra on Friday, December 4, Sammy Gyamfi said communicators of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) should not be speaking on behalf of the president on this matter.
“President Nana Add Dankwa Akufo-Addo must speak. Let him speak just like John Mahama spoke on the Airbus scandal,” he said.
His comments come on the heels of a video making rounds on social media, showing President Akufo-Addo receiving a $40,000 “donation” – said to be bribe – from a man and a woman.
The NDC has called out the president to come clean and explain the circumstances under which the money was received in his presidential office.
The party’s Member of Parliament for Ketu South Constituency, Fiifi Fiavi Kwetey, thinks the president cannot absolve himself from bribery even if it demands consulting traditional deities.
