Dr Anthony Akoto Osei, the Presidential Advisor on the Economy, says an audio in circulation on social media and other platforms on the performance of Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta, is not his voice.
In a statement issued on Thursday, July 7, 2022, Dr Osei said he did not subscribe to the alleged comments.
He described the alleged leaked tape as “unfounded,” and demanded the publication of a rejoinder as well as a retraction and apology by websites that circulated the said tape.
“My attention has been drawn to a post on Ghanaweb and other social media platforms, including a purported leaked tape, which has me allegedly commenting on the performance of the two personalities mentioned in the headline.
“I wish to categorically deny making these unfounded statements either in an interview or in an engagement with anybody,” the statement said.
It added that: “The voice in the leaked tape is emphatically not mine. Neither do I subscribe to the alleged comments.”
