The presidency has distanced itself from a purported tweet by Nana Akufo-Addo in support of the embattled Chief Executive of gold dealership firm, Menzgold.

In a statement Thursday, the Director of Communications at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin explained that the said tweet noting that the meeting between the President and Nana Appiah Mensah is fake.

“I want to put on record that NEVER has the President’s Twitter handle been used to do that. That supposed tweet is a fake… President Akufo-Addo never had a one-on-one meeting with NAM1 on April 25, 2018,” Eugene Arhin wrote.

He explained that on the said date, football governing officials from the continent and the country “paid a courtesy call on President Akufo-Addo, ahead of the conferment of an honorary doctorate degree by the University of Professional Studies.”

“The then-Ghana Football Association (GFA) President, Kwasi Nyantakyi, only brought NAM1 [Nana Appiah Mensah] to the meeting because four days earlier, on April, 21, Zylofon had indicated its decision to sponsor the Ghana Premier League,” he added.

“Never on that day did the President have a one-on-one meeting with NAM1,” Mr. Arhin stressed, adding that he never had the President post the fake tweet.
