The incorruptible personality of Akufo-Addo is a well-packaged lie – Manasseh


Award-winning freelance journalist and anti-corruption campaigner, Manasseh Azure Awuni has expressed profound disappointment in President Akufo-Addo over his corruption fight, stating that the President’s image as incorruptible and no-nonsense prior to the 2016 election was a well-packaged lie.

In an open letter addressed to Joyce Bawa Mogtari, who had claimed that Ghanaians have regretted voting out the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Manasseh asserted that he has no regrets at all voting out the NDC just that President Akufo-Addo has turned out to be a disappointment with regards to the fight against corruption.

“Three years later, I am disappointed in the alternative. The “incorruptible and no-nonsense” personality of Akufo-Addo turned out to be a well-packaged lie. That personality turned out to be a poisonous bait some of us swallowed hook, line, sinker and rod, without questioning because we were too hungry for change.

But do not I regret voting out John Mahama,” portions of the letter read.

Mr Azure Awuni is of the opinion that the claim by Joyce Bawa Mogtari who is a special aide to former President Mahama is untenable and that if the NDC wants to win back power, they must realise that they made a mess of themselves and say how different they will be.
