The campaign team of Sir John said, it has been drawn to yet another false story currently making the rounds on several media outlets that Sir John is the subject of an investigation by the Ghana Revenue Authority and the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) for the non-payment of tax.
A statement signed by?Frank Dasie Bekoe,?Co-ordinator?of Sir John’s campaign the story, written by the ?NPP News Digest? which suddenly sprung up 2 days to the National Delegates? Conference of the?New Patriotic Party, is aimed at causing disaffection for Sir John in Saturday?s conference.
A statement issued by the campaign team stated that, “The story has been fabricated, pure and simple. For the grievous offence of withholding tax from the state, is it not strange that none of the state agencies mentioned by the publishers of the story (GRA and EOCO) have not bothered to contact Sir John so far?”
For the avoidance of doubt, it said, Sir John has never defaulted on any of his tax obligations to the state and is not the subject of any investigations by state agencies in this regard.
“We urge NPP delegates and the general public to disregard such falsehoods clearly aimed at derailing the campaign of the winning candidate for the position of General Secretary of the NPP, Sir John.”
