Central Regional Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Bernard Allotey Jacobs has said that he was once investigated by Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his Tiger Eye PI team.
Anas, he said, investigated his tenure as Board member of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG).
According to him, it was the late President Atta Mills who revealed this to him.
“Anas once investigated me unknowingly when I used to be a board member of ECG. I was only informed by late President Atta Mills. I asked him why and he told me there is corruption in ECG.
“But one thing I told myself was that I only wanted the betterment of ECG at that time. I knew I was not corrupt. I served at the board and sometimes I needed money to buy fuel to work and help ECG.
“I think all these are making ECG work now. But I will say it today that if am lured by Anas and he offers me a goat or anything, I will take so you can call me corrupt,” he said on Adom TV’s Morning Show “Badwam” on Tuesday.
Allotey Jacobs’ reaction follows Anas’ latest investigative piece on football and politics, dubbed “Number 12”, which premieres on June 6 and 7 at the Accra Conference Center.
According to Allotey Jacobs, he does not believe the President will ever be involved in any fraudulent act; the NDC will still use it to score political points because of similar developments in the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
According to him, he has no doubt about utterances of the President of Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi, a lawyer captured in the investigative piece.
Allotey Jacobs was appointed unto the board of ECG by President Mills in 2008.
