Anas exposes Charles Adu Boahen

Charles Adu Boahen, Minister of State in charge of Finance, has been exposed in the latest undercover investigative piece by celebrated journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

Anas in a post on his Facebook timeline bearly a few hours before the showing of his investigative piece dubbed ‘Galamsey Economy’ noted that Charles Adu Boahen made some shocking revelations to his team in a hotel in UAE, when they posed as possible investors to Ghana.

He said, Adu Boahen alleged the vice president, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia will require about USD200,000 as an appearance fee from an investor to get his backing and influence in establishing a business in Ghana.

He said, when his Tiger Eye PI team met with the Minister of State in charge of Finance in UAE, he spoke about Bawumia’s financial demands before agreeing to assist any investor.

“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,” Charles Adu Boahen is quoted to have said.

But Dr. Gideon Boako, an aide to Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia, has contradicted claims by the Minister of State at the Finance Ministry, Charles Adu Boahen.

To him, the Vice President is smart and discreet whenever he is dealing with individuals seeking to invest in the economy.

When the Tiger Eye team got in touch with Dr Gideon Boako, the Economic Advisor and Spokesperson at the Office of the Vice President, he denied that the Vice President has authorized or discussed with anybody to solicit funds for his political ambitions or to accept an appearance fee/token for an investor to meet with him.

“So, on top of my head and having been with him closely, I will say no. I know how discreet he, the Vice President, is and he is smart and he wouldn’t even dare do such a thing,” Dr Boako remarked.
