Asenso-Boakye denies “spurious allegation” of bribery against him

The Member of Parliament for Bantama and former Deputy Chief of Staff, Francis Asenso-Boakye, has refuted a claim of attempted bribery leveled against him by one Claude Convincer Davit, said to be a businessman.

In a video making the rounds on many social media and mainstream media platforms, Convincer Davit is heard alleging an encounter with the MP in 2017 during which he was impressed upon to part with money in order to be introduced to President Akufo-Addo.

In a statement issued by his Media Assistant however, Asenso-Boakye denies the allegation and said he has never met his accuser.

“We wish to state categorically that the allegation is false and evil. Hon Asenso-Boakye does not know the gentleman in question. He has never met him nor had any interaction whatsoever with him.

“It may be recalled that this is not the first time this allegation has been made against the MP by the same person. It became obvious then that there was no iota of truth in the allegation. It gives cause to wonder why the gentleman will repeat the same allegation at this time if not for evil and malicious intentions.

“It bears saying that the repetition of a false allegation does not make it true. It was false then, and it is false today. It is obvious that this is a spurious allegation which has resurfaced as a result of the propaganda machinations of the MP’s political opponents and detractors who wish to court unnecessary public disaffection for him in order to score cheap political points.

“Should the Ghana Police and/or the Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO) find any weight in the allegation, we strongly suggest then that they invite Mr. Davit to provide further and better particulars.

“By this statement, a notice is hereby served on Mr. Davit to desist from further repeating the allegation anywhere. The MP shall, under legal advisement, take appropriate remedial action should he repeat this false allegation against him.”
