Government has rubbished reports claiming that President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has left the country to Kenya.
According to the Ministry of Information, a viral audio recording purporting to depict President Akufo-Addo speaking in Kenya is fake and should, therefore, be disregarded.
The Ministry in a Facebook post maintained that the President is still in Ghana and working from the Presidential Villa of the Jubilee house as communicated early on.
“The voice on the audio is not that of President Akufo-Addo. It is a fabrication designed to deceive unsuspecting persons that President Akufo-Addo has left Ghana for Kenya.”
“The President remains in Accra and continues to work from the Presidential Villa of the Jubilee House,” the Ministry said.
“The general public is advised to be circumspect of viral materials especially in this election year and subject such materials to scrutiny to avoid being hoodwinked by producers of fake news,” the post cautioned.
