Secretary to Ghana’s President, Nana Asante Bediatuo has denied widespread rumours that the Arts Centre has been sold. In a statement released Wednesday, May 26, Mr Bediatuo said he has been motivated to respond to the allegations circulating on social media because the manner it was presented can be seen as true. According to him, the allegations made by the unidentified woman in audio format are outright and blatant lies

“I wish to put on record that I have never met this unnamed, unidentified woman or the elders and the chiefs she claims she brought to meet with me. It is interesting to note that she does not put out any details of the alleged meeting”. Mr Bediatuo said

He entreated Ghanaians to disregard the audio and treat it with the contempt it deserves.
