In Ghana, an official of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) party says the resignation of a cabinet minister for alleged corruption is proof that President Nana Akufo-Addo’s government lacks the commitment to fight graft. Cecelia Abena Dapaah, the Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources, resigned over the weekend for allegedly keeping $1 million and millions in local currency in her house -some of which she says was stolen by employees working there. She said in her letter of resignation that the amount does NOT represent the exact amount of their personal money that she and her husband reported to the police as stolen. Mustapha Gbande, deputy general secretary of the opposition NDC, tells VOA’s James Butty, Dapaah’s resignation will not bring relief to those Ghanaians who have lost their jobs, or who cannot travel because high fuel prices.
