A member of the New Patriotic Party, Hopeson Adorye has alleged that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) paid GH₵120 Cedis each to the people who booed President Akufo-Addo at last Saturday's Global Citizens concert.
He explains that the NDC through the Chief Executive Officer of 3music Awards, Baba Sadiq, Larry Dogbey, Publisher of the Herald Newspaper and one Mr Suhuyini organized 75 boys from New Fadama in Accra to boo the President.
He adds that President Akufo-Addo was initially not expected to speak at the event due to his engagement at the United Nations.
Per the information I had it was the Trade or the Tourism Minister who was supposed to be at the festival to address the attendees.
Mr Adorye made the following remarks in an interview with Accra-based Okay FM last Wednesday, September 28, 2022.
"But the fact that the president attended one in South Africa and requested that if it comes to Ghana, he will be happy, it was going to Nigeria", he said.
"One of the two Ministers was supposed to come because of President Akufo-Addo's UN engagement, but fortunately, the president was able to arrive before the day of the event.
"They had conversations with him and it was agreed that he will come, Because Sadiq of 3 music Awards is an industry player and has a connection with the head organizers, when he heard it, he and larry Dogbey and Suhuyini met at a particular place to plan
"They contracted 75 boys from Fadama and paid each one of them GH₵120 Cedis. The videos trending is testament to it. It was from one particular shot", he said.
The president of Ghana, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, was heckled at the 2022 Global Citizen Festival stage at the Black Star Square in Accra last Saturday, September 24, 2022.
