ice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has stated that a video by Anas Aremeyaw Anas (as posted on his social media account) has caught his attention.
In the video, the Minister of State for Finance, Mr Charles Adu Boahen, is seen allegedly using his name to sell influence and collect money from fictitious investors.
According to Dr Bawuamia, the minister’s position as a minister of state is untenable if what he is alleged to have said is accurately captured in the video.
He needs to be immediately fired and looked into.
“My most prized possession in life is my integrity and I will not permit anyone to use my name to engage in any such activity. I am not aware of any such meeting held by Minister Adu Boahen or a supposed “appearance fee.”
The Accra International Conference Centre (AICC) management has announced that the documentary screening of “Galamsey Economy” by Tiger Eye PI, led by renowned investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, will take place at the centre as scheduled.
“Reports that an advertised event by Tiger Eye PI that was scheduled to take place at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC) was moved from our venue have come to our attention.
The AICC staff scheduling conflict, not a political decision as has been suggested, was the cause of the initial confusion.
“The situation is now resolved. We have communicated with the organizers and the event is expected to come off as scheduled.”
Tiger Eye PI previously stated in a series of tweets on Sunday, November 13 that it was “saddened that barely 48 hours to the public screenings, when invitations have been sent to the diplomatic community and other high-profile members of society, and flyers sent out to the public, we have had to look for a new venue.
“We sincerely apologize to the general public for the inconvenience caused by the venue change. Another auditorium is being secured by our agent, and we will inform the public as soon as it is available.
“All already sold-out tickets are good for the new venue.”
