Deputy National Communication Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kwaku Boahen, has described as “cheap lies” a video circulating on social media suggesting he was sacked from a radio discussion for being drunk.
In a statement on Tuesday, 10 April 2018, Mr Boahen said his “attention has been drawn to a maliciously edited video accompanied by a false write-up being circulated by the NPP (New Patriotic Party) and their assigns on social media and I will like to set the records straight”.
He explained that he “was invited for a programme and I arrived earlier than the time scheduled for the programme, so, as I was waiting outside and listening to the station, I could not tolerate the lies being spewed by Adomako Baafi, who, I understand had bought airtime for that purpose, so, I walked in uninvited and sought to rebut, and, for the producer to call him to order”.
He continued: “After making my point, the producer pleaded that I allow the programme to continue since the programme I was invited to had not commenced yet.
“The NPP guys clearly felt irritated and outraged like their president, and, so, have edited the said video with the wrong caption to smear my person. Let us not fall for their cheap lies”.
