President Nana Akufo-Addo has never had a one-on-one meeting with the embattled CEO of troubled gold dealership firm, Nana Appiah Mensah (NAM1), Director of Communication at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin, has stated.

Mr Arhin has also refuted claims that Mr Akufo-Addo tweeted his admiration of NAM1’s success story after they shook hands at the Jubilee House in April 2018 last year when the now-fugitive businessman accompanied the president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) at the time, Mr Kwesi Nyantakyi, to the presidency.

“I want to put it on record that never has the president’s Twitter handle been used to do that. That supposed tweet is a fake,” Mr Arhin noted on Thursday, 10 January 2019.

He was emphatic that: “President Akufo-Addo never had a one-on-one meeting with NAM1 on the 25th of April 2018”.

Mr Arhin, however, explained that on the alleged meeting day, “GFA officials and CAF officials, including its President, Ahmad Ahmad, paid a courtesy call on President Akufo-Addo, ahead of the conferment of an honorary doctorate degree by the University of Professional Studies, Accra. The then-GFA President, Kwesi Nyantakyi, only brought NAM1 to the meeting because four days earlier, on 21st April, Zylofon had indicated its decision to sponsor the Ghana Premier League. Never on that day did the President have a one-on-one meeting with NAM1 and never on that day did he post that fake tweet being forcefully trumpeted by Sam George”.

Meanwhile, a warrant has been issued for the arrest of NAM1 and all the directors of the embattled gold-trading firm.
