Ahafo Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Kwabena Owusu Sekyere has disclosed that the president Nana Akufo-Addo has fired the former Minister of Sanitation, Hon. Cecilia Abena Dapaah from post following her alleged stolen US$1m, €300K and some amount of Ghana cedis from her residence.

According to him, the president has made it known to the public his stands in fighting corruption in Ghana by setting up institutions and other steps in this fourth republic.

Speaking on Kumasi based wontumi TV/Radio, he said, ” Sometimes it’s very stupid to defend some issues. First of all I must thank the president, I heard people saying she has resigned, she was sacked. The president doesn’t tolerate this behavior”

“The government is entreating it citizens to save foreign monies at the Bank to boost the economy, why should a whole sector Minister save this amount of money and be keeping it home”

He said, the minister has not brought disgrace to herself and her family but to the entire NPP as a party.

“This disgrace isn’t for her only but the party at large, it’s an honor to serve your party and the Nation at the highest office of the republic therefore we must be transparent. What my sister did is not fare and I urge all party members not to defend her. It’s wrong that’s why the president has sacked her”

How can you put US$1m in your room for one year, he asked.

Mr sekyere has advised government appointees to stay away from activities that will shadow the image of the party and be kind to society, respect others.

“It’s the party that forms government, when you are lucky and called to serve, be kind, respect and show love to others, when things fall apart, they’ll surly stand behind you for your good deeds.
