Bawku Central MP Mahama Ayariga has fiercely rubbished rumours that he features in the alleged sex videos involving Chinese galamsey kingpin Aisha Huang.
Aisha who is currently in custody for illegal mining is allegedly circulating sex videos involving herself and some highly placed Ghanaian officials who allegedly gave her protection to continue with her illicit mining activities.
It is unclear which Ghanaian officials are involved in the act.
In a statement, the former Education minister said it is mindless for anyone to suggest that he is involved in such a scandal.
“I have become aware of the circulation of a video on social media purportedly showing me engaged in a sexual intercourse with a lady of Asian origin.
“Those involved in this dastardly and barbaric act seems to suggest that I provided the lady and her company with a licence to engage in “galamsay” mining during my tenure as the Minister of Environment, Science Technology and Innovation in exchange of sexual favors,” the statement on his Facebook wall said.
It added: “I categorically deny the mindless suggestion that I am the male actor in the video and all the inferences it draws. Those who orchestrated this agenda and promoted it have only succeeded in giving us a glimpse of the crude and the unfulfilled lives they live.
“I want to assure the people Bawku and Ghanaians that I am grateful and respect the opportunity they have given me to serve as their Member of Parliament and the different portfolios I was privileged to work. The thought that I serve at the behest of the people never departs me, it is what informs and drives every decision I make; this will not change”.
