Dr. Gideon Boako, the man who currently serves as the Economic Advisor and Spokesperson at the Office of the Vice President of the Republic of Ghana has taken to Facebook to react to MzGee‘s suggestions that he has something to do with the leaked tape of veteran actor, Psalm Adjeteyfio aka T.T.
Providing some details of how things unfolded on his part in this whole voice leak saga, Dr. Gideon Boako said that MzGee was just ranting unnecessarily.
He went on to say that he has never had any form of encounter with MzGee. However, he got a hold of the voice note when the husband of MzGee, another media practitioner with the Multimedia Group, Raymond Acquah sent it to him.
According to Dr. Gideon Boaku, when he listened to the tape earlier, he could not make the head and tail of it, until Raymond Acquah finally came to offer some kind of explanation for him.
He adds that as soon as he understood the facts of the tape clearly, he hurriedly told Raymond to make sure his wife or any other person does not publish it as it will not be good for the office of the vice president.
Addressing Mzgee’s outburst on Facebook, he wrote
“Where from this needless rant from Mzgee. I don’t know you and have never dealt with you in my private or public life. It is your husband that I have a working relationship with because of the work I do.
Your husbands shares an audio with me in which a voice similar to that of the famous TT is speaking to someone (known to be you). Listening to the audio for the first time I struggled to understand what it was meant for. Your husband graciously explains the import of it to me in a telephone conversation to the effect that TT had alleged that he is being denied support because of the assistance from the Vice President and some other people including the greater Accra regional minister.
I told your husband that cannot be correct and therefore he should not publish the audio and I will delve into the matter. As at the time, your husband made me understand you had done a story on it but he is going to ask you to put it on hold. I thanked him. Days later, your husband drew my attention to a publication on the said audio and I expressed shock and worry because I thought we agreed the content was not accurate and so should not be published.
He made me understand it was not from you or him but someone on Peace fm had used it during an entertainment show and got it published online by a portal. I requested for the link and your husband sent to me. I told your husband I did not share it and so we should investigate.
I contacted two different persons at peace fm, including our correspondent at the Jubilee House from peace fm, Pious. I have not yet received information as to how they got it. Now you hurriedly come out to say I leaked it for political gains. Where is the political gains in this to me or my outfit? You may want to check your trails right and stop the malicious propaganda.”
