NPP stalwarts used Akufo-Addo’s name to extort $22m from Seidu Agongo over Heritage Bank – A Plus

Anti-graft campaigner, Kwame A Plus has said some officials of the Akufo-Addo administration, as well as bigwigs within the governing New Patriotic Party, extorted, in bits and pieces, a total of $22 million from businessman Seidu Agongo with the promise to protect Heritage Bank, of which he owned majority shares, from being collapsed by the Bank of Ghana and the government.

In a Facebook live broadcast on Sunday, A Plus also revealed some NPP stalwarts, while in opposition, used the name of the party’s presidential candidate at the time, Nana Akufo-Addo, to seek sponsorship to the tune of GHS7 million from Mr Agongo.

A Plus told the President directly that “the people around you used your name to take and extort money from Seidu Agongo”, adding: “So, even if Mr Agongo stole any money from the state, half of it went to some of your appointees and some NPP officials”.
