I don’t have power to sell Arts Centre – Asante Bediatuo
The Secretary to the President, Nana Asante Bediatuo, has refuted allegations against him that he has sold the Accra Arts Centre to a private investor.
In a video circulating on social media, an unidentified woman accused the legal practitioner of using his position as secretary to the presidency to auction the Arts Centre.
In a sharp response, Nana Asante Bediatuo described the allegations as baseless.
“I wish to put on record that I have never met this unnamed, unidentified woman or the elders and the chiefs she claims she brought to meet with me,” he noted.
The woman claimed she had facilitated a meeting between Nana Bediatuo and some chiefs for the sale of the Art Centre.
However, Asante Bediatuo discredited the claims indicating, “She does not state the date of the meeting, the place where the meeting took place, and the names of the elders and chiefs who accompanied her to the alleged meeting. That is because the so-called meeting never took place, or at least not with me”.
He has, therefore, challenged the woman to reveal details of her allegations.
“I will entreat all persons to disregard the audio, stop circulating it and treat it with the utter contempt it deserves”.
