“If you don’t expose me, you are a bastard”, the Deputy Minister for Information and Media Relation, Mr Murtala Mohammed, has told Mr Ernest Owusu-Bempah, a Communications Officer for the National Democratic Party (NDP).
Mr Mohammed was speaking on “Eko Si Sen” on Asempa FM Tuesday evening.
The deputy Minister’s comment followed accusations by Mr Owusu-Bempah to the effect that he (Mohammed) had been arrested on Visa fraud charges in Nigeria in the past.
The allegation appeared to have infuriated Mr Mohammed who challenged Mr Owusu-Bempah to prove what he said was a false allegation.
He said if Mr Owusu-Bempah failed to prove the allegation, then he was not the child of his parents.
Mr Mohammed, whose voice was rising as he spoke, added that if Mr Owusu-Bempah managed to prove the allegation, he would resign as deputy Minister, step down as MP for Nanton and retire from politics for good.
