Akufo-Addo was informed of Adu Boahen’s “corruption video” by Ken Agyapong – Martin Amidu alleges
According to Martin Amidu, Akufo-Addo was informed of Adu Boahen’s “corruption video” by Ken Agyapong. Former Special Prosecutor Martin Amidu claims that President Nana Akufo-Addo was aware of the 2018 undercover video in which Charles Adu Boahen, a fired Minister of State for the Finance Ministry, was reportedly involved.
He claimed that Akufo-Addo was made aware of the film by Assin Central MP Kennedy Agyapong, who had previously disclosed that he was in possession of footage documenting high-ranking officials and pro-regime businesspeople engaging in corruption.
Amidu stated that it called into doubt his fight against corruption to the extent that the president was aware of the video but did not act by firing Adu Boahen as early as 2018 when the recordings were recorded.
In a statement, Amidu said that the alleged suspected corruption offense for which Charles Adu Boahen’s appointment was terminated on November 14, 2022, was committed on February 8, 2018, while Boahen was serving as the deputy minister of finance for the Fourth Republic’s 7th Parliament, whose term ended on January 6, 2021.
He further said “Kennedy Agyapong, who had obtained a copy of the footage and did not keep it a secret from the government, made the suspected corruption on February 8th, 2018 known to the government. Adu Boahen received his end-of-service compensation for his work for that Government, but.”
He criticized the promotion of Adu Boahen from deputy minister, which he held from 2017 to 2021, to minister of state at the finance ministry, which he held till his termination.
Thus, he charged that Akufo-Addo fired Adu Boahen for political reasons, citing the prospect of a budget boycott by MPs who demanded Ken Ofori-ouster Atta’s due to recent financial problems.
“The President chose to sacrifice Adu Boahen for political expediency,” he emphasized. “The President was already under pressure from rebel members of his majority caucus to remove Adu Boahen from office for the economic mess caused by the President’s management of the country.”
‘Galamsey Economy’ documentary and aftershocks
The contents of the most recent documentary by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, some of which appear to have been recorded in 2018, were revealed last week.
Charles Adu Boahen, the Minister of State of the Finance Ministry, was fired as a result of the article, known as the “Galamsey Economy.”
He was fired because of statements he made in the documentary claiming Vice President Bawumia accepted a $200,000 “appearance fee” before assisting foreign businessmen in starting firms in Ghana.
In a statement, the vice president categorically denied the accusations.
In Dubai, Adu Boahen met the investigators posing as investors. During their conversation, which was recorded, the sacked Minister—at the time serving as the deputy minister of finance—took an unspecified sum of money as a “gift.”
