Akua Gaddafi, the very first Ghanaian policewoman to ride across four West African countries in a day has revealed that she has never received a bribe in her profession.
The hardworking officer, according to Mordernghana.com, made this revelation during an interview with Ato Kwamina and Frema Adunyame on Citi TV's lifestyle variety show, Upside Down.
When Akua was asked whether she has ever indulged in any of such practices, she explained and questioned that, “Not at all; why would I take a bribe; for what? What is the reason behind me taking that bribe you are talking about?”
Furthermore, Akua mentioned that she has actually never witnessed any police officer in Ghana take a bribe and therefore considers it a rumour that officers accept bribes.
“I have been hearing these rumors going on but I don't think it is true because I haven't seen it before; a police personnel taking bribe, I have never seen it before,” she said.
Akua currently works at the Criminal Investigations Department at the Ghana Police Service but is assigned to the Formed Police Unit of the institution.
