One of the top members of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Hopeson Adorye has made a bizarre claim about the people behind booing of the president, Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo at the recently held Global Citizen Festival.
According to him, it was the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) who orchestrated the booing incident at the Global Citizens Festival.
He made this known during an interview with Accra’s Okay FM on September 28, saying that 75 Fadama boys were staged by the NDC with the help of Baba Sadiq, CEO of the 3 Music Awards; Larry Dogbe; and one Suhuyini.
In his submission, he said;
“Per the information I had, it was the Trade or the Tourism Minister who was supposed to be at the festival to address the attendees.
But the fact that the president attended one in South Africa and requested that if it comes to Ghana, he will be happy. It was going to Nigeria.
One of the two ministers was supposed to come because of President Akufo-Addo’s UN engagement. But fortunately, the president was able to arrive before the day of the event.
They had conversations with him and it was agreed that he will come. Because Sadiq of 3 Music Awards is an industry player and has a connection with the lead organizers, when he heard it, he and Larry Dogbe and Suhuyini met at a particular place to plan.
They contracted 75 boys from Fadama and paid each one of them GH¢120. The videos trending is a testament to it. It was from one particular shot.”
