Dr. Anthony Akoto Osei, President’s Economic Advisor, dissociated himself from a social media recording in which he allegedly disparaged two administration bigwigs.
The audio allegedly made by the former Minister of State at the Finance Ministry shows he indicated the Vice President and Finance Minister are inferior economic managers.
According to the former Tafo Pankrono MP’s Special Aide, he is ill and has not spoken at any gathering or forum.
He said he still advises the President and supports the government’s choice to seek an IMF bailout to restore the economy.
“He is currently indisposed and could not have said what the video purports to be coming from him,” a statement released by his Personal Political Assistant to the former Minister John Kwadwo Owusu Boakye stressed indicating some faceless individuals out of desperation are bent on soiling the hardwon reputation of the former lawmaker
Adding that “In the meantime, we entreat the Security agencies to investigate and bring the perpetrators to face the full rigours of the law”.
