Afriyie Ankrah Challenges Countryman Songo To Prove Corruption Case

Former Youth and Sports Minister Elvis Afriyie Ankrah has urged the Commission enquiring into the circumstances leading to Ghana’s poor turn out at the world cup to invite the Herald newspaper and popular TV host Patrick Osei Agyeman,popularly knows as Countryman Songo.

Afriyie Ankrah made the challenge in his closing remarks after cross examination on Monday when he was asked by the Chairman of the Commission,Justice Dzamefeh if he had anything to say.

He went on to produce a copy of the Herald newspaper which had a report of an alleged sexual dalliance between the minister and singer Becca and prayed the Commission to invite the newspaper to share the information leading to such a publication.

“My Lord all kinds of things have been reported about me in the media including this report. There is a radio station with a presenter named Fireman and he has alleged that I have spent money even before the budget was approved.All these people should be brought before the Commission to share their evidence,” Afriyie Ankrah said.

Meanwhile during cross examination, Afriyie Ankrah also suggested he suspected sabotage from certain quarters. “There are some aspects of this whole drama that does not make sense but we will talk in chambers,” he told the commission.
