Former Tamale Central MP, Inusah Fuseini, has accused President Akufo-Addo of acting as a “clearing agent” rather than combating corruption effectively. Fuseini’s comments, made during an appearance on JoyNews’ Newsfile on Saturday, June 15, centred on the high perception of corruption under Akufo-Addo’s administration, as reflected in the Corruption Perception Index (CPI).

Fuseini highlighted several instances to support his claims, including the 2018 Australian Visa scandal, where 50 individuals posing as journalists were denied entry into Australia for the Olympic Games. In response, the then Deputy Youth and Sports Minister, Pius Enam Hadzide, along with other officials, was suspended. However, President Akufo-Addo later reinstated Hadzide and others after an investigation, the report of which remains unpublished.

“The Australian Visa case, who cleared the man? Because the police never issued a report. But it is the President who cleared him on an NPP conference platform,” Fuseini asserted, emphasizing that the President’s actions undermined proper investigative procedures.

Fuseini also pointed to the case of former Sanitation Minister Cecilia Abena Dapaah, whose $1 million was allegedly stolen. He argued that if the President hinders police investigations, it impedes justice. Additionally, Fuseini referenced Akonta Mining, suggesting the President cleared the company of wrongdoing, further supporting his “clearing agent” accusation.

In summary, Fuseini criticized President Akufo-Addo’s handling of corruption allegations, accusing him of prematurely clearing officials and entities without transparent investigations.
