The Ministry of National Security has challenged the Convenor of #FixTheCountry Movement, Oliver Barker-Vormawor, to produce evidence of his allegation that a US$1 million offer was made to him to stop activism in Ghana.
Mr Barker-Vormawor alleged that the National Security Minister, Albert Kan Dapaah, offered the money at a meeting to be given to the movement and allied organisations to halt protests against the government.
He made the allegations at the start of Day 2 of the #OccupyJulorbiHouse protest on Friday, September 22.
However, a statement issued by the national security ministry described the allegations as false.
“While it is acknowledged that the Ministers for National Security and Finance and other relevant stakeholders, in 2021, engaged the convenors of the Fix the Country Movement to listen to their concerns, it must be stated emphatically that no offer of money or appointment was made to persuade the group to end its ‘activism’”.
“The allegations made by Oliver Barker-Vormawor are thus false, unfounded, and a calculated attempt to hoodwink Ghanaians,” the Ministry said in a press release on Friday, September 22.
“The Ministry, therefore, challenges him to produce the alleged recording of the said inducement,” the statement said.
