There is a fake publication trending on the social media that President Akufo-Addo and the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta, had attempted to smuggle £26 million out of Ghana into their foreign bank accounts only for it to be detected and confiscated at the London Heathrow airport.
This news in propagation is the work of the enemies to tarnish the hard won reputation of both the President and his Finance Minister. It is never true. Nothing of that sort has happened in London or else, it would have been reported on the news in the United Kingdom. It has neither been broadcast on air nor published in any of the newspapers in the United Kingdom.
It could well be an orchestration by the shameless NDC and their agents and assigns who are desperate for power by employing any criminal means possible to woo the hearts and minds of Ghanaians. Has former President John Mahama, now the NDC presidential-candidate, not said that he will tell both the truth and lies to Ghanaians in order to woo them to vote for him?
Fellow Ghanaians, please let us be discerning enough to tell lies from the truth. The Finance Minister and the President won’t be that stupid enough to transport physical cash of twenty six million pounds (£26,000,000) to London. Anyone who carries that amount of money on their body to London, Paris, Washington, Toronto, etc., risks detection and arrest. The President of all people will never dare do that. If John Mahama will, he won’t, because he loves his country, he is not corrupt and also, he is not that stupid.
Anyone who comes across that publication must treat it with the contempt it deserves. Whoever put it out in the public domain in the first place is a little-minded individual with his IQ lower than that of a Whiteman’s pet dog or an African-trained parrot. A Whiteman’s dog will be able to foresee that such a gargantuan lie will not be believed hence will not dare carry out such an act. However, here we are having a human being, an irrational one of course, thinking people will believe such a complete lie hence putting it out without hesitation, for public consumption.
Finally, I entreat all rational Ghanaians and public readers to debunk the usual propaganda, desperation and the little-mindedness by the NDC in their attempts to hoodwink Ghanaians into thinking they, as thieves as they are, are saints who hold in their hands the key to Ghana’s prosperity.
