The Director of Communication at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin, has dismissed comments by Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram constituency, Sam George, that President Akufo-Addo tweeted his admiration for the success story of NAM1.

In a statement by Mr Arhin, he said “never has the President’s twitter handle been used to do that”.

“That supposed tweet is a fake and I’m daring Hon. Sam George to prove that indeed that has been done. President Akufo-Addo never had a one-on-one meeting with NAM1 on the 25th of April 2018,” the statement added.

The statement further explained the circumstances under which the President met the Menzgold CEO, insisting that “never on that day did the President have a one-on-one meeting with NAM1 and never on that day did he post that fake tweet”.

“On that day, GFA officials and CAF officials, including its President Ahmad Ahmad, paid a courtesy call on President Akufo-Addo, ahead of the conferment of an honorary doctorate degree by the University of Professional Studies.
