He asserted that the deals were not corrupt, in contrast to the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and certain civil society organizations (CSOs).

Gabby criticized CSOs in a tweet from August 15, 2023, who had taken the deal to a regional court in Abuja, which had rejected it, but who had since kept silent about the decision.

He insisted that the transaction would eventually be in Ghana’s best interests, but it was abandoned for political reasons.

“I’m curious as to why Transparency International, Ghana Integrity Initiative, and the CSOs that brought Agyapa before an international court have been silent ever since their case was dismissed completely in July.

 

But I do appreciate their action. It benefits our democracy. And I’ll beg you everyone to study the ECOWAS court’s ruling. Agyapa, a highly legitimate—though contentious—move by the government to increase the use of its gold profits, had nothing to do with corruption. “None!” he said.
