Must it take you 2 years to publish Alleged $1m Bribery Audio? – Barker-Vormawor’s Integrity Questioned
A Sustainability, Climate, and Social Innovation Advisor, Enam Akoetey has gone hard on the Convener of the FixThe Country movement, Oliver Barker-Vormawor over his decision to now speak out about an alleged bribery attempt to stop his activism.
Oliver Barker-Vormawor has accepted the challenge by the Ministry of National Security to provide evidence to back his claim that the Minister offered to bribe him with $1 million in 2021.
According to the lawyer cum activist, he has evidence to his claims and would release it in the public domain after the ongoing #OccupyJulorbiHouse protest.
But speaking in an interview on JoyNews, Enam Akoetey noted she would have published such audio the very day the conversation on the supposed inducement happened since she believes in integrity.
She therefore did not seem to understand why Barker-Vormawor who’s demanding better leadership held on to the so-called audio for almost two years before deciding to go public with it.
“There are a lot of claims going out and I am saying that are they all about integrity. If you are saying that a lot of people called you to say that don’t publish something, the question is if you are a person who is value-driven, would you listen to them or say –I hear what you are asking me to do but it is the wrong thing so I am going to defy you and publish?”
“So why would it take him two to three years for him to publish this audio?” she queried.
This follows taking up the challenge from the National Security Minister, Kan Dapaah to produce evidence of the alleged attempt by the government to induce him with an amount of $1 million so they cease his “activism”.
Speaking on the same news analysis program on Saturday, the FixTheCountry’s Convener clarified that the meeting he [Oliver Barker-Vormawor] made reference to was an exclusive secret meeting between him and the Minister of National Security, Albert Kan-Dapaah even before the first FixTheCountry protest in 2021.
“The Minister of National Security has issued a statement claiming that I was met with other FixTheCountry conveners and other stakeholders. I want to put it on record that the meeting I am talking about happened exclusively between myself and the Minister for National Security where that offer was made to me.
“I will release an audio into the public domain, which would confirm that the Minister invited me to a secret safe house location, that we should have an individual meeting between him and myself, at which meeting he made that offer to myself. No other FixThecountry convener was involved there,” he revealed.
