Oliver Mawuse Barker-Vormawor, the convener of the #FixTheCountry Movement, has been challenged by the Ministry of National Security to provide proof of his claim that he was offered a $1 million bribe to discontinue his advocacy work.
On Friday, September 22, Mr. Barker-Vormawor said to certain journalists that while he was in the UK, he was invited to travel back home at the expense of the taxpayer for a meeting with the authorities and that Minister of National Security Albert Kan Dapaah had offered him $1 million to halt all of his protests in exchange for halting.
The ministry acknowledged engaging Barker-Vormawor in a press release obtained by 1Family Radio, but only to hear the demonstrators’ worries and not to offer him any incentive to stop his protest.
“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 Ministry stated.
“The Ministry, therefore, challenges him to produce the alleged recording of the said inducement,” parts of the statement read.
The public was exhorted to disregard the accusations and treat them with the “utmost” contempt they merit.
