President Akufo-Addo says he will act on any appointee accused of corruption if proper investigative bodies find them culpable.

He said it is not enough to condemn an appointee based on mere allegations.

Speaking at the Jubilee House when a delegation of the Chiefs and People of Dzodze Traditional area paid a courtesy on him, the President reiterated his promise not to shield any appointee caught in the web of corruption.

“We should not engage in mere allegations and condemnations. That one is not right. The matter has to be investigated and if something is found, then the appropriate remedies will be applied. If we have a situation where mere allegation is enough to convict people, then none of us would ever be in a position to form a government.

“All we have to do is to get up and say this is corrupt and that is the end of it. There has to be evidence to back it and that is why we have institutions of state examining and going into the allegations,” the President asserted.

President Akufo-Addo said he and his government were encouraged and inspired by the “strong words” of commendation by the chiefs and queen mothers from Dzodze because it meant that their work was being appreciated.

“It allows you to have more vim to even try to do better, so I appreciate it very much, the words of commendation about the transformative impact our policies are having on the people of Dzodze and Ghanaians in general,” he added.

The President said he was happy that traditional leaders were working with the government in a harmonious and constructive manner and expressed the hope that such a collaboration would be sustained.

The leader of the delegation, Togbe Dei III, earlier commended President Akufo-Addo and the government for the exemplary leadership exhibited through “your life changing policies.

We are witnessing transformation in our communities and in the lives of our people,” adding that people must be given praise where it was due and be criticised constructively.

He said President Akufo-Addo had proven to be a man they could trust because he had been able to fulfil almost all the promises he made during the 2016 electioneering at Tadzevu.

Togbe Dei, however, appealed to the President for development projects and mentioned the Keta harbour project, development of a quarry at Dzodze, construction of a modern market, roads, as well as improvement of infrastructure at Dzodze Penyi and Weta senior high schools as some of the projects.
