The anchor of Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana program, Paul Adom-Otchere, has described a meeting with Cecilia Abena Dapaah, the disgraced former sanitation minister, and her husband at their Accra home.
In the middle of the uproar over money missing from the former minister’s residence, the host of Good Evening Ghana revealed that he had been specially invited by her.
On the episode of his show airing on July 27, Paul said that the day before his appearance, he had met the minister.
One of the main concerns he brought up with her was the news that a five-hour search of the home earlier that week by the Office of the Special Prosecutor had turned up a brand-new hoard of cash.
Paul: I ask Cecilia Dapaah, “Aunty Ceci, is this the entire house,” in our conversation. Is this the location of the five-hour search?
Which five hours, which five hours, said Mrs. Dapaah.
According to Adom-Otchere’s continuation of the meeting’s narrative, he was informed that the house was built in 1976 and that they had been residing there since that year.
He made fun of the OSP, claiming that they had detained the former minister and displayed images and videos of her home while conducting the search. allegations that the OSP has categorically refuted as well as accusations that a search turned up a fresh cache of cash.
