Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has called on the National Security apparatus to investigate the dismissed Minister of State for Finance, Mr. Charles Adu Boahen for using his, (Bawumia’s) name to peddle influence and collect money.
This was contained in the Vice President’s Facebook post on Monday, November 14, 2022.
The post read: “my attention has been drawn to a video by Anas Aremeyaw Anas (as posted on his social media handle) showing the Minister of State for Finance, Mr. Charles Adu Boahen, apparently using my name, to peddle influence and collect money from supposed investors.
If what the minister is alleged to have said is accurately captured in the video, then his position as a minister of state is untenable.
He should be dismissed summarily and investigated.
I am unaware of any such meeting held by Minister Adu Boahen or a supposed ‘appearance fee’.
My most cherished asset is my integrity and I will not allow anyone to use my name to engage in corrupt activities.”
