The government has stated that it will appropriately deal with the Editors of the AfricaWatch magazine for publishing lies about President Akufo-Addo.
The Magazine in its latest edition accuse the President and Ghana’s foreign affairs minister of seeking to gain personally in the purchase of the $12 million facility.
According to a statement by the Communications Director at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin, the June edition of the magazine titled “The inside story of the Oslo scandal: Conspiracy to steal” contains nothing but manufactured lies.
The contents of the publication impugn criminal conduct on the part of the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, and the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Hon. Shirley Ayorkor Botchway, MP, in Government’s attempts to purchase properties for its newly opened embassy in Oslo, the capital of Norway.
The statement added that “the allegations in the publication are baseless, libellous, and scurrilous, and contain nothing but manufactured lies. We are aware of this magazine’s notoriously established agenda of defaming the President through the deliberate publication of such false stories about him. The agenda will fail, as it has failed before.
“The publishers, editors and distributors of the publication will be dealt with in the appropriate forum.”
