The western regional executives of the New Patriotic party NPP has released a press statement declaring their support for Mr. Charles Bissue, who is embroiled in corruption allegations after the release of the Galamsey fraud video by Anas Aremeyaw Anas. The government has called for the raw tapes to be submitted to the CID, the state institution mandated to investigate matters of such nature but Mr. Anas, who has called the CID a ‘Clearing house’ has refused, instead, submitted his findings to the Special prosecutor’s office.
READ THE STATEMENT BELOW
On behalf of the Western Regional Executives of the ruling NPP, we wish to state unequivocally that, Mr Charles Cromwell Nana Banyin Onuawanto Bissue (Regional Secretary) is a loyal and dedicated member of the Western Region and has executed his duties impeccably. We as Regional Executives can vouch for his values, principles and capabilities; that when it comes to Party activities, Charles Bissue is outstanding. He is very loyal, committed and dedicated to every task assigned him, both at the National and the Regional level.
As a Region, the Charles Bissiue we call a colleague, has discharged office as a Regional Secretary without any corrupt activities, thus, it came as a surprise when one journalist(ANAS), sought to undermine his integrity with a video that went viral.
Therefore, we as Regional Executives, move to add our voice to the numerous calls by all well meaning Ghanaians that Mr Anas Aremeyaw Anas should produce the unedited footage for the security agencies to carry out the necessary investigations.
In as much as we would not condone any any acts of corruption, we as Regional executives and Ghanaians for that matter seek to see the matter finalised, and more importantly knowing who Bissue is, that’s why we have added our voice today.
By this release, we are appealing to government, to expedite the process and if indeed Charles Bissue is guilty the laws of the land should take it course but if Anas is also buying time to delay the process, he should be impressed upon to respect the state agency by submitting himself to authority and made to follow due process.
We are of a firm believe, that, Charles Bissue is innocent, but we also want the rule of law to take its due cause.
In conclusion, we are appealing to the president, H.E. Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo and the necessary state authorities to compel Anas to do what is expected of him and if not, we as a Region will advise ourselves.
Long live WR Executives
Long live NPP
Long live Ghana
