In a statement released on Monday, November 14, the Director of Communications at the Presidency, Mr. Eugene Arhin, stated that the President “thanked Mr. Adu Boahen for his strong services to his government since his appointment in 2017 and wished him well in his future endeavors.”

Mr. Adu Boahen is alleged to have told the undercover investigators in the aforementioned documentary by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas that Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia only requires a token payment of $200,000 to make an appearance before meeting with fake investors.

According to the Minister, the Vice President would demand contracts from an investor on behalf of his siblings in order to get their support and influence in starting a firm in Ghana.

“Do you mean, like appearance fees and stuff? I mean he, himself (the Vice President), if you give him some (USD) 200,000 or something as a token, as thank you, appreciation, that’s fine. 

“He’s not really, he’s not really (like) that. All he needs is to worry about his campaign money in 2020,” he iterated.
