Rashid Pulpo welcomes Akufo-Addo’s pardon for Abuga Pele
Former Minister Of Public Private Partnership and Allied Institutions in erstwhile Mahama-Led Administration Rashid Pulpo has lauded President Akufo-Addo’s granting of pardon to former Member of Parliament for Chiana Paga Abuga Pele.
The former lawmaker was sentenced to imprisonment during H.E John Mahama regime on grounds of offence he committed in connection with GYEEDA. He was sentenced to imprisonment together with Akpena Assibit who also founds himself at the wrong side of the supreme laws of Ghana.
Abuga Pele and Akpena Assibit were represented by astute counsel Thaddeus Sory, Raymond Bagnabu and the late Carl Adongo who mounted strong defence during the trials but lost the case.
But, President Akufo-Addo has granted the Chiana Paga Lawmaker Abuga Pele pardon after spending over four years in custody on health grounds.
In his immediate reaction to the president’s action, Rashid Pulpo expressed excitement for the bold decision by the Ghanaian leader to realise the former Chiana Paga MP, Abuga Pele.
