They revealed alleged use of public funds by Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo and his cousin Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta to illegally to pay their foreign election consultants, KRL International, who have been cited for engaging in dirty lobbying on behalf of even dictators and warlords.

The agreement which had required the Government of Ghana through the Ministry of Finance to pay the American consultants, US$25,000every month from June 30th, 2017 to June 30th, 2018, has become a subject for discussion at the US Department of Justice.
