Corruption in Ghana: Muntaka Mubarak Resigns?

muntakaOn-leave Minister of Youth and Sports, Hon Mubarak Muntaka has resigned. Credible Castle sources have confirmed to Citi news that the Asawase Member of Parliament tendered in his resignation letter to the President Thursday afternoon, just a day after the National Security Agency sent its findings against the Minister to President John Mills.

The exact reasons contained in Muntaka’s resignation letter are not clear, but sources say it was a “brief letter” notifying the President of the Minister’s decision not to continue serving in office. Other sources however say Hon Muntaka was virtually “forced” by the President to resign, following adverse findings, bordering on morality made against him in the NSA report.

The NSA report, Citi news is reliably informed, has cleared Hon Muntaka of the fifteen allegations of financial malfeasance made against him by the Principal Accountant of the Ministry. The latest turn of events appear to confirm an earlier Citi news report which said Hon Muntaka was under pressure to resign over the ‘Chichinga’ scandal or be booted out of office by the President.
