harles Adu Boahen’s selection as a Minister of State at the Ministry of Finance is said to have been influenced by an unnamed private attorney.
In a meeting with his Tiger Eye PI team in a hotel room in the United Arab Emirates, this senior barrister and solicitor said that he played a key role in Charles Adu Boahen’s appointment to the Finance Ministry, according to undercover investigative reporting by Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
The Tiger Eye PI team pretended to be investors looking to network with influential people in order to establish some businesses in the nation.
He claimed that when they spoke with the lawyer, he made it clear that he had no control over either the president or the vice president but would do his best to see that their investments were realized.
In a meeting with the Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, and the President of Ghana, H.E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, in a hotel room in the United Arab Emirates, a senior lawyer and traditional chief claimed he was not in a position to direct or suggest a package.
“The Barrister claimed to the Tiger Eye investigators, who pretended to be wealthy businessmen, that he could not persuade the President to do what he wanted. However, he will work to give them access to the President, his Vice President, and some influential people so they can conduct business in Ghana, according to Anas Aremeyaw. Just a few hours before his documentary, titled “Galamsey Economy,” was scheduled to be broadcast, Anas posted something on his Facebook timeline.
“Let me try. I’ll work hard. Since we are discussing the President, I am unable to guarantee that I can influence him, but I can assure you that I will make every effort to see that your wishes are fulfilled.
You see, I believe it’s a little early for me to start discussing these issues. I’m referring to discussing the President’s package, etc. Money is important to me, Sir, but it is not everything. It is the connection. Money will come when we have a good relationship.
Don’t be concerned about the package because we can always (do that). You’re a decent man. So let’s not include that one. However, in Ghana, you as the investor must keep at least 75% of the business when you establish it and hire local partners, giving you control. The attorney was quoted as saying, “At least, let’s say, speaking in respect of the bank,” highlighting his role in the appointment
Numerous claims by Adu Boahen that he could arrange meetings with Vice President Bawumia for $200,000 were also included in Anas’ post.
In the same report, Bawumia’s aide rejected the assertion as untrue.
