…But gov’t debunks assertion

But the Presidency has rejected the assertion of the renowned Professor.

A Minister of State at the Presidency, Alhaji Abdul Rashid Pelpuo, stated in an interview that the mere fact that allegations of corruption had been made against government officials do not indict or make them guilty.

He contended that government would always ensure that corruption officials are punished and that the law is made to work.

According to him until a person is found guilty by a competent court of jurisdiction it cannot be said that that official is corrupt. He therefore urged Ghanaians to base their facts.

Johnson Aseidu Nketia, General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress, also stated that it was wrong for people to paint every public official as corrupt merely based on allegations.
