Akufo-Addo accepts Cecilia Dapaah’s resignation

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has approved the resignation of Cecilia Abena Dapaah from her position as the Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources.

The President, upon accepting her resignation dated Saturday, July 2023, expressed gratitude for her loyalty to the government’s reputation.

Madam Dapaah tendered her resignation just one day after becoming the subject of public discussion due to allegations that her housemaids had stolen substantial amounts of foreign and local currencies from her residence in Accra.

In her resignation letter, she stated her decision to step down was motivated by her desire to prevent this matter from becoming a focus of the government’s attention and impeding its crucial work at this time.

Currently, two housemaids of the Minister, Patience Botwe (aged 18) and Sarah Agyei (aged 30), along with three others, are facing charges before an Accra Circuit Court for allegedly stealing $1 million, €300,000, and millions of Ghanaian cedis from Abena Dapaah’s residence in Abelenkpe, Accra, between July and October 2022.

However, Cecilia Dapaah says there were inaccuracies in the figures being reported in the media.

“Whereas I can state emphatically that those figures do not represent correctly what my husband and I reported to the Police, I am very much aware of the import of such stories around someone in my position.
