Former President John Dramani Mahama has questioned why a minister of state in the Akufo-Addo government would have millions of cedis and other foreign currencies in her house.
In a tweet, Mr Mahama said the act was ‘scandalous’ and was not a good conduct for public office holders.
This follows the alleged stealing of over one million dollars, €300,000 and several millions of Ghana Cedis from the house of the Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources, Cecilia Abena Dapaah and her husband by her house helps.
Two house helps of the minister are currently being prosecuted before an Accra Circuit Court over the incident.
$1m + €300k and millions of GHS in a Ghanaian Minister’s home?
Even if genuinely acquired, why keep millions of hard currency at home?
Will @NAkufoAddo ever set a good example for public office holders in his administration?
