A private legal practitioner, Martin Kpebu has apologized and retracted his statement that he made against President Nana Akufo Addo when he said the president was part of the 'Criminal Syndicates' at the Jubilee House.
“I think so far the President, probably, hasn’t heard; maybe, we need to repeat it more forcefully for him to hear that he is part of the criminal syndicates at the Jubilee House – the President is certainly part." That was the statement of Martin Kpebu.
Mr. Martin Kpebu was speaking on the survey conducted by the CHRAJ and GSS that about ¢5 billion was paid in cash as bribes to public officials last year, according to a survey.
But he later retracted his statement and apologize.
"In the heat of the discussion, I passionately expressed my disgust at the inaction of the presidency in dealing with certain matters bothering on corruption." He said.
"I do, hereby, retract and apologize for the expression purporting to connect the President of the Republic to crime." He added.
