“No President has fought corruption like Akufo-Addo” – Eugene Arhin States

On Tuesday, September 7, 2021, President Akufo-Director Addo’s of Communications, Eugene Arhin, spoke to journalists at Jubilee House and reaffirmed President Akufo-commitment Addo’s to combatting corruption.

This followed after the Presidency rejected a report released by the Ghana Center for Democratic Development (CDD-Ghana) which says 62 percent of Ghanaians do not trust President Akufo-Addo to fight corruption.

Eugene Arhin said;

The report is not one we can easily dismiss. Yes, they have conducted their survey but we, on the other hand, believe that in the fight against corruption, no President has done more than Nana Akufo-Addo and there are facts to back it.

If we are to consider the funds that were sent to the five accountability institutions of states, there was a 25% increase in their funding in 2017. In 2018, there was a 34% increase across the board.”

The establishment of an independent institution to fight corruption, that is the office of the Special Prosecutor, was in fulfilment of a campaign result by the President,” he added.

We thus disagree with the survey results. No President in the history of the country has fought corruption as much as Akufo-Addo has
