Anas Aremeyaw Anas Makes Corruption Allegations Against Charles Adu Boahen
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh reported in a separate story that undercover journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas made damaging allegations about Charles Adu Boahen.
The renowned undercover journalist alleged that investigators attached to his Tiger Eye PI posed as investors during a meeting with the minister in the United Arab Emirates.
The purpose of that meeting was to expose Adu Boahen as a corrupt public official in Nana Akufo-Addo’s administration.
Publishing snippets of his latest investigative report in the New Crusading Guide on Monday, November 14, 2022, Anas alleged that the minister told the undercover journalists that vice president Mahamudu Bawumia needs only $200,000 to give his support to an investor.
The minister allegedly made that comment in his bid to tell the “investors” that to get ahead as an investor in Ghana, one needs the blessing of the likes of the vice president and at a price.
Titled “Our Minister & The Cash”, Anas also said in the report that after the minister received wads of dollars as gift for shopping, he promised to present the president Nana Akufo-Addo at some point in the negotiations.
