$40k bribery video: We are coming after all stations which televised it— NPP threatens

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has threatened to take action against media houses which have aired a secret video purporting that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo was allegedly caught taking a bribe of $40,000.

The governing party says it is unethical and unprofessional for traditional media houses to circulate the video as it defames the President.

Speaking at a press conference in Accra yesterday,  the Deputy Campaign Manager for NPP, Dr Mustapha Abdul-Hamid said the incident happened in 2016 when a party supporter donated the funds to support the NPP campaign.

“It is all over social media. Yesterday, they even dared to show it on a television station. We are coming after that television station. It is defamatory on the President of Ghana. It is unethical and unprofessional. You take old videos of campaign donation and distort it, seeking to make it look like a recent video, come on. Is the NDC too incompetent to fake a video correctly? You want to run a nation and can’t even fake things.”

“Listen to the narrative they to the video, that the president took a bribe of $40,000. This in 2016 was equivalent to GHS168,000. Really? And they think that people will believe? Let’s even escalate it to $40,000 at the current rate, that will give GHS230,000. It cannot even buy the engine of the Ford expedition that candidate Mahama took,” he added.
