The Spokesperson for the Energy Minister, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh, has denied claims that the minister celebrated his 55th birthday in Monaco, France.
Kofi Abrefa Afena in a press release issued on Wednesday, May 31, said these false reports have been given front page prominence in some newspapers.
He stated that Dr Opoku Prempeh was in Ghana on his birthday, which was May 23, and even attended a meeting of the Economic Management Team.
He has thus asked citizens to disregard the reportage.
“On the 23rd of May, 2023 which marked the 55th birthday of Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh, he was in Ghana and attended a meeting of the Economic Management Team (EMT)”
“On the same day, 23rd May, Dr Prempeh also attended a Board meeting of the governing Board of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC),” excerpt of the statement said.
“On 24th May, the day after, Dr Prempeh’s birthday, I was in his house in the morning, at his instance, where he recorded an appreciation message to his well-wishers for the love shown him on his birthday,” the statement added.
