Former CEO of Asante Kotoko Herbert Mensah has said he is ready to release the alleged secret tape on the controversial GHS 90 million earmarked for President John Mills' flagbearership bid.
He has therefore invited the Adom FM Dwaso Nsem team to go listen to the two-hour security tape which he and former President Rawlings had access to from the Castle.
Dwaso Nsem host, Adakabre Frimpong Manso said on his show on Friday that Mr. Mensah had hinted that the alleged discussion about the 90 million cedis covered only nine minutes of the tape so that is what he would let them listen to and play back on Dwaso Nsem on Monday, May 16, 2011.
But he did not say when and where Mr. Mensah would be meeting with them to play back the tape.
On Tuesday May 10, Herbert Mensah, a strong supporter of the Rawlingses, alleged that he and former President Jerry Rawlings had discovered from security tapes they got from the Castle that President Mills’ campaign team planned to use about GHS90 million to fuel his campaign for flag bearer of the NDC.
He was however not willing to go into details on the matter such as where the funds will be coming from, stating that at the appropriate time, they will come out with the full details.
That allegation has generated so much controversy with government officials and NDC officials all speaking on the matter and flatly denying the story.
Even President Mills in an interview with Asempa FM denied the allegation and called on National Security to immediately investigate the matter.
The President laughingly said if he had access to such funds, he would have used it to complete the various road construction projects ongoing in the country.
The National Security Advisor, Brigadier General Nunoo Mensah has also hinted he will invite Herbert Mensah for questioning over the allegations.
Mr. Mensah himself has not been spared as he has been thoroughly bashed by NDC supporters who have called him a liar and an enemy of the Rawlingses who wants to bring the NDC down.
Speaking on the need to release the tapes on Dwaso Nsem, Major
Rtd. Boakye Gyan said Adom FM will do its listeners and the whole country a disservice if they refuse to go and listen to the tape.
He explained that the alleged security tape is of national interest which should not be hidden.
The former Journalist and security expert however cautioned that the appropriate background checks be made to verify the voices on that tape to ensure that it is genuine before it is released for public consumption.
