Minister of State at the Finance Ministry Charles Adu-Boahen has said he has easy access to the President and can introduce businessmen to him at just a snap of his finger.
He says this unfettered access to the President is a result of the long-standing relationship he had with his late father Prof. Albert Adu-Boahen.
Adu-Boahen made these known to some supposed businessmen he met in Dubai in the latest Anas expose.
To him, the President who is like an Uncle to him cannot deny him any request considering the role he played in his father’s campaigns to be President of Ghana.
“The President himself is also, like my uncle. He was my father’s campaign manager when my father was running for office. So, he will also (come in),” he told Tiger Eye PI investigators who posed as businessmen.
When asked at the meeting what will be the cost for him, Charles Adu Boahen, to lead them to invest with about 500 million (US) dollars in Ghana, he said that he will take 20% of the amount that will be invested as commission for his services.
“Okay. No problem. Okay, let me think about that because (I) think we can manage something. Okay. Hm! This is tough. Sheik, what’s the right address? What should I call you? Okay, Sheik. Sheik, 20%,” he finally said.
It is shocking to note that Charles Adu-Boahen also convinced the investors to purchase some of the Bonds being sold by the Government of Ghana.
“But you are not allowed to buy any debt instrument? You know, we issue bonds. You know we just issued this energy bonds. Is he allowed to; can you buy bonds?”
