The Deputy Chief of Staff and Political Assistant to the President, Francis Asenso-Boakye has described as false media reports suggesting that he owed an alleged NPP group who besieged his residence in Accra Wednesday, ABC News can report.
Media reports indicated that a group of young men calling themselves Elephant Youth Association(OSONO) stormed the residence of the Deputy Chief of Staff Wednesday morning to demand monies they claimed he owed them.
The group, according to reports, claimed that Mr Asenso-Boakye had also denied them all financial assistance from President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
Rebutting the report in a Facebook post, Mr Asenso-Boakye confirmed that the group besieged his residence but refuted claims that he owed them money.
“I wish to state categorically that I do not owe any person or group of persons money. Neither has the President given me any money due a group of persons which I have withheld as alleged, ” he stressed.
Describing the incident as an orchestrated attempt to mar his reputation, he urged the public to disregard the reports, revealing that he has since lodged a formal complaint with the Police.
“l urge the general public to disregard any news circulating on social media and other media portals that I owe the so called OSONO which is not an identifiable group within the NPP It’s a well orchestrated and vile attempt to cause disaffection and besmirch my reputation. I remain focused in performing my duties to His Excellency, the President and Government,” Mr Asenso-Boakye said.
