Ghana’s former ambassador to the United Kingdom, Victor Smith, has claimed that the voice on the controversial leaked tape indeed belongs to the national chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu Ampofo.
Speaking on Accra FM’s Ghana Yesom, on Monday, June 17, 2019, Smith stated that he really knows Ampofo’s voice, and is convinced that he was the one speaking to NDC members.
“Whatever I heard was his voice, unless somebody can convince me that they can doctor things to make it sound like my voice; and that much I don’t know whether someone has done that before,” he said.
When asked what makes him think it was Ofosu-Ampofo’s voice following the denial by the NDC officials, he said: “I have known him long enough.”
