My attention has been drawn to a statement circulating on social media supposedly issued by one Evans Nuamah, said to be the manager of Madison Hotel, the place where some thumb printed ballot papers were seized.
The content of the statement is not only laughable but can also hardly pass the intelligence test. First of all, the statement indicated that I, Andy Owusu, allegedly booked three rooms in the hotel to entertain my business partners.
It further stated that I came in with two bags on the night that I made the booking. The statement further reads "Chairman Wontumi, on Sunday, led Police men and media to our hotel premises to the very room his assistant booked, only to be told they were thumb printed Ballot"
I want to state unequivocally that until today, Monday, the 5th of December, I never knew of a hotel called Madison Lodge let alone make a booking there.
Besides that how could I have been so foolish or dumb to have booked hotel rooms for such operation and register with my real name?
Perhaps, such thing can only be done by people with such weak intelligentsia like those who issued that statement accusing me of planting those ballot papers.
Apart from this the author of the statement, perhaps being motivated by his heinous agenda, even failed to get the day right by stating that the incident happened on yesterday when in actual fact the police invaded the hotel on Monday.
Also, our checks indicate that there is no such name called Evans Nuamah as the manager of the hotel. Our investigations have proven that the name of the hotel is Castro.
I will therefore like to place on record that I have never booked any hotel room neither have I stashed any ballot paper in a hotel as being speculated.
I want to tell the NDC faces behind this statement that any attempt to draw me into their evil plans will never succeed.
