General News of Tuesday, 18 July 2017
President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, says having assumed office on January 7, 2017, the least he expected from his own political party members were acts that will impugn the integrity of the government and the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
But to his utmost surprise, he was hard-hit with bad publicity by the media following some wrong doings by the Invincible and Delta Forces, two vigilante groups with strong ties to the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Addressing Editors and Senior Journalists at the Flagstaff House on Tuesday, President Akufo-Addo said when he was confronted with the issue, the best that he could offer was not to shield anybody but to let the law takes it full course.
“I communicated to the law enforcement agencies that the best thing to do was to let the law take its full course without any political interference,” he noted.
The President’s encounter with the media was to avail himself and account for his stewardship for the six months that he has been in office.
President Akufo-Addo was sworn into office on January 7, 2017, after winning 53.84% of votes cast in the December 7, 2016, elections.
