Bole MP describes Cecilia Dapaah’s resignation letter and Akufo-Addo’s response as ‘love letters’

Bole Member of Parliament, Yusif Sulemana, has urged President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to treat the issues involving the immediate past Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources, Cecilia Abena Dapaah, with seriousness. He emphasized that Ghanaians expect thorough investigations into the matter concerning Madam Abena Dapaah.

“What we want to see is a very serious investigation. Not just that, we also expect the president to take this matter seriously.

“If you look at the kind of love letters that the two of them exchanged, for me it is worrisome. We were expecting the president to fire the woman, but he failed in doing that. The woman resigned and in her resignation letter, you could see the jovial nature of the content of the letter.

“This is an official letter, but you see her addressing the president as my dear and all of that.”

On Monday, July 24, the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) arrested Cecilia Abena Dapaah, who had recently resigned from her position as Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources. The arrest is related to suspected corruption and corruption-related offenses involving significant amounts of money and valuable items allegedly stolen from her residence. She is currently being questioned by authorized OSP officers.

Madam Dapaah had tendered her resignation to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Saturday, July 22, after news of foreign cash stolen from her bedroom surfaced. In her resignation letter, she expressed her intention to cooperate fully with state agencies to establish the facts and asserted her belief in being fully exonerated from all allegations.

“I intend to cooperate fully with all the state agencies to enable them fully establish the facts,” she assured in her letter.

“I have no doubt that at the end of the processes, it will be established that I have conducted myself with integrity during my period in public service and I will be fully exonerated from all the allegations,” she further said.

It was reported that Madam Cecilia Dapaah had kept substantial amounts of money, including $1 million, €300,000, and undisclosed millions of Ghana Cedis at her home, which were allegedly stolen by two house helps. These house helps are currently facing trial at an Accra Circuit Court.

Madam Dapaah had previously mentioned inconsistencies between the reported facts and the information provided in her and her husband’s statement to the police. In her resignation letter, she stressed that the figures publicly disclosed did not accurately represent what she and her husband had submitted to the police.

Despite the stories surrounding someone of her stature, the former lawmaker acknowledged the gravity of the situation.

“I am resigning, therefore, because I do not want such a matter to become a preoccupation of government and a hindrance to the work of government at such a crucial time.”
