The woman spotted in the purported Nana Akufo Addo $40,000 briber and corruption video that went viral two days ago has broken silence.
Hajia Fawzia Karim in an interview with Asaase Radio said the video was recorded four years ago when the current President Akufo-Ado was then the presidential candidate for the New Patriotic Party in the election.
“…the video was before the 2016 elections. I had about 1000 t-shirts which had the pictures of the then-presidential candidate and his vice and added an amount of GH¢40,000 to support Nana. I went there as a party supporter,” – Hajia Fawzia disclosed.
In the last few days, two videos showing the same environment but with different stories have been circulated the media space.
In the first video, Nana Addo was seen accepting cash in a brown envelope; a video the governing New Patriotic Party have claimed was doctored by the opposition National Democratic Congress to discredit the government and its leader.
Salis Yakubu Atsuluho of the Salis Newspaper has been accused to Hajia Fawzia as the individual who breached the president’s privacy and recorded the video after she established that he was part of the two people who accompanied him to Akufo-Addo’s private residence.
Agreeing with Kweku Baako, the editor-in-chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper who also asserted that the video was recorded by Salis Yakubu Atsuluho.
