Anas’ $200K Bawumia appearance fee claim, I’m innocent ~ Adu Boahen

Minister of State in Charge of Finance, Charles Adu Boahen, has denied using Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia’s name, inter alia, to peddle influence and collect monies from investors.

“I have not been involved in this act for which I am being accused,” he posted on Facebook.

The Minister was fired Monday morning (14 November 2022) when the Presidency was made aware that he had been cited in a latest exposé by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas dubbed “Galamsey Economy” which will be premiered tonight at the Accra International Conference Centre.

Mr Adu Boahen is alleged to have used Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia’s name, inter alia, to peddle influence and collect monies from investors.

According to Anas, Mr Adu Boahen told undercover journalists who pretended to be businessmen in a Dubai Hotel that to get to the attention of the Vice President, they will “need just USD200,000 token as an appearance fee and some positions for the Vice President’s siblings to get his backing and influence in establishing a business in Ghana.” 

The investigation according to the Tiger P.I boss was to investigate top-level corruption that undermines investor confidence in Ghana.

Shortly before Mr Adu Boahen was fired, Dr Bawumia responded by saying he should be dismissed and investigated if the allegation turns out to be true.

Dr Bawumia indicated that his most cherished asset in life is his integrity and he would not allow anyone to use his name to engage in corrupt activities.

Meanwhile, Mr Adu Boahen insist he is innocent.

He said he looks forward to a full investigation which he is hoping will reveal that he has committed no such act.
