The investigations and subsequent trial were conducted in accordance with the laws of the Republic of Ghana, and all the defendants were given fair opportunities to defend themselves in court.

Alhaji Salifu was found guilty of conspiracy to willfully cause financial loss to the state, which violated the Public Procurement Act, 2003 (Act 921), and intentionally misapplying public property.

During a press conference, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) clarified that President Akufo-Addo had no involvement in the trial and emphasized the independence of Ghana’s courts. The NPP expressed sympathy for Alhaji Salifu but rejected the attempts by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to involve revered chiefs in criminal prosecutions. They also debunked the NDC’s claim that the Savannah Region was excluded from development plans, citing a letter from the Minister for Local Government and Rural Development confirming the inclusion of the region in the District Hospitals Programme.

The NPP reaffirmed their commitment to fair and transparent governance and development plans for all regions in Ghana.
