Dr. Fordjour made the headlines in Ghana after it was discovered that an award scheme he introduced was fake
The Ghana chapter of the United Nations (UN) has issued an official press release and disclaimed any knowledge of Dr. Kwame Fordjour or his United Nations-themed awards.
In the disclaimer sighted by YEN.com.gh and fast going viral on social media, the reputable outfit indicated that its attention had been drawn to an award scheme purporting to be linked to the organisation and the Kofi Annan Foundation.
The disclaimer stated categorically that it did not have anything to do with Dr Kwame Fordjour or his "Blueprint Global Challenge Awards".
They went on to add that if they were to organize any such thing, it would not be rushed and that it would follow strict rules and then be published on their official website.
Adding to its disclaimer, the international outfit went on to add that whenever anyone was in doubt about a scheme or programme affiliated to the UN, a check from their official website and agencies would clear all doubts.
The disclaimer has finally brought the whole controversy surrounding Dr. Fordjour's awards to rest.
He appeared in many videos vouching for the authenticity of the awards scheme and claiming that he was indeed a representative of the UN.
The press release, however, has spelt out clearly that the UN has absolutely nothing to do with Dr Kwame Fordjour.
He made headlines after he awarded top personalities in Ghana with citations and plaques for their immense contributions to society.
Among the awardees were Sarkodie, Berla Mundi, D-Black, Chairman Wontumi, Johnnie Hughes and Nathaniel Attoh.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a video of Dr. Kwame Fordjour bragging about his recent escapades with his fake award scheme had surfaced online and was fast going viral.
In the video, Dr. Kwame Fordjour now referred to as Dr. UN, was seen in what looked like a small eatery with some people and was speaking about the UN award scheme.
Among many other things, he indicated that he was the one who could make people stars but people like him had been relegated to the background.
