The Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has called for the immediate sacking of the Minister of State at the Finance Ministry, Charles Adu Boahen. 

Dr Bawumia’s call is over Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ allegation against the Minister in his yet-to-be-aired documentary dubbed “Galamsey Economy.”

In the said documentary, Mr Adu Boahen is said to have told the undercover investigators that Bawumia needs just $200,000 tokens as an appearance fee before meeting with supposed businessmen.

The embattled Minister is also reported to have said that the Vice President would demand some positions from an investor for his siblings to get his backing and influence in establishing a business in Ghana.

“You mean, like appearance fees and stuff? I mean he, himself (the Vice President), if you give him some (USD) 200,000 or something as a token, as thank you, appreciation, that’s fine. 

He’s not really, he’s not really (like) that. All he needs is to worry about his campaign money in 2020,” Charles Adu Boahen is alleged to have said.

However, Dr Bawumia in a Facebook post today denied the allegations and called for the sacking of the Minister. 

“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, inter alia, to peddle influence and collect money from supposed investors. 

“I would like to state that 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,” he insisted.
