The Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), has cleared the two deputy Chiefs of Staff at the Flagstaff House of corruption allegations made against them by popular and controversial musician Kwame Asare Obeng, aka A-Plus.
The Dynamic Youth Movement of Ghana (DYMOG) petitioned CHRAJ to probe Francis Asenso-Boakye and Samuel Abu Jinapor over some corruption allegations made by A Plus.
According to the group, the corruption allegations by the popular musician and the subsequent revelations that the police, which investigated the matter, may have covered up for the two presidential staffers, demanded that CHRAJ takes up the matter.
But CHRAJ has in a report, dismissed the petition against the duo describing it as without merit and completely unwarranted.
In the report CHRAJ said it was “satisfied that the evidence does not support the allegations of corruption and abuse of power against Messrs A. Jinapor and Asenso Boakye… the allegations could not be substantiated whatsoever.”
“…accordingly, this complaint is hereby dismissed as being without merit and totally unwarranted.”
The report by CHRAJ comes after the Police CID which investigated the allegations also exonerated the two deputy Chiefs of Staff of any wrong doing.
In September, A-Plus took to social media platform Facebook, to accuse Messrs Jinapor and Asenso-Boakye of being corrupt.
Without giving any proof to back his claims, A Plus also described the two Deputy Chiefs of Staff as thieves. A comment he later apologized for.
The allegations of corruption were allegedly made by A Plus after the two presidential staffers reportedly intervened in a Unibank contract for onsite banking services at Korle Bu which had been terminated by the CEO of the hospital.
