Alleged Akufo-Addo Bribery Tape: You Know Deep In Your Heart That You Are Lying – Manasseh Azure Fires Kevin Taylor

Published

on


Renowned Investigative Journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni has expressed concern at the way and manner in which US-based Ghanaian journalist, Kevin Ekow Taylor has attempted to portray President Akufo-Addo as someone who took a bribe in his capacity as President.

Kevin Taylor released a video in which President Akufo-Addo was seen receiving what appears to be a number of Party T-Shirts and an amount of GHS 40,000.

According to Mr Taylor, this shows that the President is corrupt and has taken a bribe.

However, the NPP claims that the video was filmed in 2016 while the President was still an opposition leader and that the said items was only a donation made by a party financier and was in no way a bribe.

Reacting to this, freelance journalist, Manasseh Azure expressed concern at the attempt by Kevin Taylor to deliberately malign the President for political expediency.

In a Facebook post, Mr Azure wrote,

His rights were violated by whoever filmed him without his consent. He was not engaged in any criminal or illegal act so you cannot justify this in any court of law. The video being shared shows that someone contributed money and T-shirts to support his campaign, but you’re telling us that he took a bribe as a president. (If you want to raise issues with political party funding, we can discuss that. And it’s not limited to only one party).

But this is a new low. You know deep in your heart that you’re lying, so who do you think should believe your lies?We must hold our leaders accountable when they go wrong, but it is also our duty to protect them when they become victims of malicious propaganda. If you gloat today because it happened to your political opponent, it will one day happen to you.What you’re doing is counterproductive to the political cause you seek to promote. It will turn decent minds and sympathetic hearts away from the party. The biggest mistake a political party can make is to assume that ALL the voters are stupid.

Anybody can do anything to achieve a political goal, but I believe we are all answerable to a supernatural being. And we will all pay or be paid for what we do here on earth before we exit this unpredictable stage called life.Mind your ways, for you may never have the chance to say sorry”.
