- The daughter of president Akufo-Addo has denied her involvement in the BOST oil scandal
- She says she has never involved herself in any oil business before
The daughter of President Akufo-Addo Edwina, has denied involvement of any kind in the alleged contaminated fuel saga involving the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company Limited (BOST) and two other private firms.
According to her, some members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), communications team are ‘lying through their teeth’ to link the first family to the allege fuel scandal.
Her denial comes on the back of accusations leveled against her by a communication team member of the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi that she [Edwina] was deeply involved in the matter.
The NDC man in a media interview on Friday accused the daughter of the president: “I’m hearing rumours that one of Akufo Addo’s daughters, Edwina is deeply involved in the matter so is it the reasons why he is silent? This BOST issue can’t be swept under the carpet looking at its gargantuan nature. This is not a matter the president should be silent about”.
But Edwina Akufo-Addo in a press statement has rubbished the accusations leveled against her.
“I wish to state categorically that this allegation is false. I have no such involvement in this matter. I have no relationship with any of the two companies I have done no business with BOST or its MD, and can, therefore, not be in a position to be described as "deeply involved" in this transaction or any other transaction whatsoever with BOST.
She also insisted that, “If I may stress, I have never had any interaction with any of the two companies involved or any personalities connected with these two companies.”
