Ex-Sports Minister Elvis Afriyie Ankrah has requested the 2014 World Cup Commission to invite controversial sports broadcaster Patrick Osei 'Countryman Songo' Agyemang and Herald newspaper to prove their allegations of corruption and infidelity levelled against him.
The former Sports Minister referred to publication made by the Herald newspaper about an allegation of an extra-marital affair he was having with Ghanaian musician Becca during Monday’s sitting at the Media Center of the Accra Sports Stadium.
Afriyie Ankrah who has since been moved to the Presidency as a Minister of State also made reference to constant allegations of corruption levelled against him by Patrick Osei Agyemang (Countryman Songo) on his Fire for Fire show on Asempa FM.
The seasoned politician who is determined to have his smeared name cleared requests the commission to invite personalities and media houses responsible for such allegations be subjected to strict proof by the commission.
“This is a publication made by the Herald newspaper that I had a session with Becca in Brazil,” he told the commission.
“They took pictures with me and Becca when I was outdooring the ambassadors at an event at Labadi Beach Hotel and since then I have not set eyes on her.
“There is also a radio station who constantly allege – Sika Die, Sika Die [I have eaten the money].
“The station …. I think is Asempa FM and their Fire for Fire show hosted by Songo, Patrick Osei Agyemang.
“I think that people who have ample evidence and constantly make these allegations to come and prove them.”
The 2014 World Cup Commission has already invited Kumasi-based Sports Journalist Samuel Joachim Bokeem to defend himself statements deemed to contemptuous.
He is expected to make an appearance before the commission on Thursday.
