Ghana’s former Ambassador to China, Horace Nii Ayi Ankrah, has said in an interview monitored by MyNewsGh.com that there is no iota of corruption in the Airbus deal.
Speaking on the Dwabirem show on CTV, the former Ghanaian diplomat said the NPP is only seeking to make political capital out of the scandal.
But, in reality, he said: “There is no iota of corruption in the deal and, so, Mr. John Mahama should not be forced to speak on this matter. He shouldn’t worry himself at all,” he told host Kwame Appiah Kubi,
Mr. Ankrah further asked President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to also refer the PDS scandal to the Office of the Special Prosecutor just as he did the Airbus scandal.
The President, soon after the Airbus news broke, referred the matter to the OSP for investigations.
But Mr. Ankrah said: “I am shocked that the President did that. What is it that is in there that the President forwarded to the investigator? There is nothing.
“But let me ask the government one question: Why didn’t the President also forward the PDS deal, which we all knew was characterized by corruption, to the OSP? It beats my imagination.”
