Rockson Bukari resigns from Presidency over bribery scandal
A Minister of State at the Presidency, Rockson Bukari, has resigned after a tape recording captured him attempting to stop a Starr FM journalist from publishing a damaging story about Shaanxi Mining company leaked.
The former Upper East Regional Minister had earlier denied claims he attempted to bribe the journalist to kill the story against a judge and the Shaanxi Mining Company late in 2018.
A statement by the Communications Director of the Presidency, Eugene Arhin, stated that the President, Nana Addo Dabkwa Akufo-Addo, had accepted the resignation of the Minister.
