The Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako says the video in circulation on social media alleging bribery against President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo was recorded in October 2016.
He said it was recorded by Salis Yakubu Atsuluwo, at a time President Akufo-Addo was campaigning to become President in the 2016 elections.
He indicated the money was offered as part of political party campaign support.
Speaking on Accra based Peace FM’s Kookrokoo morning programme on Wednesday [Watch video below from 1:41:20 onwards], Mr Baako said Salis Yakubu used to work with Anas Aremeyaw Anas’s Tiger Eye P.I. but has since parted ways with Anas.
He said Salis did not know that the original video was available to us [Kweku Baako and others] “so we released it to expose his doctored one,” he said.
Baako who said some aspects of the issue was linked to his [Baako’s] case with Kennedy Agyapong in court as well as that of Anas Aremeyaw Anas versus Kennedy Agyapong in court insisted that he cannot go into details because of the court case.
