The Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), has exonerated two presidential staffers of corruption allegations made against them by Kwame Asare Obeng, aka A-Plus, a sympathizer of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
CHRAJ was petitioned by a group calling itself the Dynamic Youth Movement of Ghana, after the two had been exonerated by controversial investigations by the Criminal Investigations Department [CID].
In September, A-Plus took to Facebook to make vague allegations against President Nana Akufo-Addo’s two Deputy Chiefs of Staff, Francis Asenso-Boakye and Abu Jinapor.
It later emerged that the accusations had to do with the two putting pressure on the CEO of Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, Dr. Felix Anyah, to give back an on-site revenue-collection contract at the hospital to UniBank after the same contract had been terminated.
In a document containing its findings, sighted by Citi News, CHRAJ said it was “satisfied that the evidence does not support the allegations of corruption and abuse of power against Messrs A. Jinapor and Asenso Boakye… the allegations could not be substantiated whatsoever.” “Accordingly, this complaint is hereby dismissed as being without merit and totally unwarranted,” CHRAJ concluded.
The Criminal Investigations Department (CID), which also investigated the claims, also found the allegations baseless.
