Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia claims that he has been made aware of a film in which Charles Adu Boahen, the minister of state for finance, is seen, among other things, using his name to buy influence and solicit funds from fictitious investors.
According to Mr. Adu Boahen in the video, which is an investigative report by Tiger Eye P.I., Dr. Bawumia needs a $200,000 token as an appearance charge before meeting with fictitious businesses.
The Vice President allegedly demanded specific positions from an investor for his siblings in the Galamsey Economy exposé, according to the Minister, in order to get his support and influence in starting a firm in Ghana.
“You mean, like, appearance costs and things like that? I’m talking about the Vice President himself; if you want to send him a symbol of your gratitude or something like (USD) 200,000, that’s OK.
He’s not really (like that), he’s not actually. The only thing he needs to be concerned about in 2020 is his campaign finances, allegedly remarked Mr. Adu Boahen.
But Dr. Bawumia refuted the claims in a Facebook post.
“I would want to clarify that the minister’s position as a Minister of State is untenable if what the minister is purported to have stated is accurately recorded in the video. He ought to be immediately fired and looked into,” he stated.
