Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has told the media and Ghanaians to ignore the propaganda machinery deployed by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in just a few days to election 2020.
According to him, just like the NDC did in 2008 when they peddled falsehood about the then NPP government, they have started peddling falsehood to paint the government black.
The Minister was responding to reports suggesting that a government official had been arrested in United kingdom for engaging in money laundering.
He said “No government official has been arrested in the UK. It is a total fabrication and we are clear in our minds that it is a fabrication by the NDC and it is part of their strategy for these last eight weeks where they will churning out a lot of fabrication, lies, and fake audiotapes. We are clear in our minds that it is the NDC for one or two reasons. The first person to articulate it publicly is the Honorable Inusah Fusieni, an NDC Member of Parliament”.
“They are the ones who are championing it and articulating it on their online media platforms including Radio Gold online. And now you can also find that there is a fake audiotape that purports to be international news broadcast on it which is being circulated since last night,” he said.
“We are calling on first of all the media and the general Ghanaian public to not fall for this fabrication and fake doctored or cooked up tapes that they are going to be churning out in the next eight weeks as we get ready for the elections,” he added
