The President of Ghana has terminated the appointment of the Minister of State at the Finance Ministry, Charles Adu-Boahen.

This comes a few minutes after the Vice President of Ghana demanded his dismissal and subsequent investigation into allegations of corruption against him.

“My attention has been drawn to a video by Anas Aremeyaw Anas (as posted on his social media handle) showing the Minister of State for Finance, Mr. Charles Adu Boahen, apparently using my name, inter alia, to peddle influence and collect money from supposed investors. I would like to state that if what the minister is alleged to have said is accurately captured in the video, then his position as a minister of state is untenable. He should be dismissed summarily and investigated.”

A statement from the Presidency indicated that the President took the decision to sack him after he spoke to him.

The matter has since been referred to the Office of the Special Prosecutor for investigations to unravel the truth or otherwise.
