Hopeson Adorye, a prominent figure in the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), has accused the National Democratic Congress (NDC) of planning the hooting scene at the Global Citizens Festival.
He claimed that the NDC had made amends for those who heckled President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Saturday in Independence Square.
Speaking with Okay FM in Accra on September 28, Adorye claimed that the NDC staged 75 Fadama boys with the assistance of Larry Dogbe, one Suhuyini, and Baba Sadiq, CEO of the 3 Music Awards.
Even though “all the bloggers in Ghana were there and streamed live,” he believes that the NDC was responsible for the booing because of the biased footage of the occurrence.
He said that Baba Sadiq was behind everything after learning that the president would attend from the event’s organizers.
“Per the information I had, it was the Trade or the Tourism Minister who was supposed to be at the festival to address the attendees.
“But the fact that the president attended one in South Africa and requested that if it comes to Ghana, he will be happy. It was going to Nigeria.
“One of the two ministers was supposed to come because of President Akufo-Addo’s UN engagement. But fortunately, the president was able to arrive before the day of the event.
“They had conversations with him and it was agreed that he will come. Because Sadiq of 3 Music Awards is an industry player and has a connection with the lead organizers, when he heard it, he and Larry Dogbe and Suhuyini met at a particular place to plan.
“They contracted 75 boys from Fadama and paid each one of them GH¢120. The videos trending is a testament to it. It was from one particular shot,” Hopeson Adorye said.
