ABC News has gathered the list of appointees of former President Mahama currently facing trial for alleged cases of corruption.
The cases involve institutions such as SSNIT, Venture Capital Trust Fund, MASLOC and COCOBOD.
In the lead up to the 2016 election, then-candidate Akufo-Addo pledged to fight corruption by prosecuting all officials suspected to have engaged in the act under the Mahama administration to serve as a deterrent to other public officials.
Three years after winning power, President Akufo-Addo’s government has come under stern scrutiny in the past few weeks over its perceived failure to prosecute officials of the Mahama administration for alleged cases of corruption.
However, allaying the fears of Ghanaians and responding to his critics at the 2019 Bar Conference in Takoradi on Monday, President Akufo-Addo disclosed that 21 appointees of the erstwhile Mahama administration are currently being prosecuted.
ABC News can establish that the President also noted that more of such prosecutions will be seen in the coming weeks as relevant agencies continue to investigate several more allegations of corruption.
