Akufo-Addo’s bribe video is malicious propaganda – Mannasseh Azure

Award-winning investigative journalist, Mannasseh Awuni Azuri has reacted to the video of President Akufo-Addo allegedly taking bribe.

A few days ago, news broke that the Presidential aspirant for ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP) was caught taking bribe in a video taped secretly.

From the video, a delegation was sent to see Nana Addo and they were led to the president by Dr. Agyei Bawuah, Ghana’s ambassador to the United States.

A woman and a man could be seen introducing themselves as wife and brother of Alhaji Abass; director of urban roads.

In the video, an amount concealed in a brown envelope was handed to Nana Akufo-Addo and he received it while beaming with smiles.

According to freelance journalist Manasseh Azure, the viral video of the president taking a bribe is just propaganda used by his opponents to tarnish his reputation. The money was given to him to support his political campaign and there’s nothing wrong with that because all political parties ask for support when it comes to election campaigns.

He called on the media to defend public figures when it comes to issues like these for it’s their responsibility.
