The Managing Editor of the New Crusading Guide, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako Jnr. has revealed that the law firm belonging to the cousin of the president, Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko benefited an amount of $100,000 from the drafting of the Agyapa deal.
He however cleared the air saying that even though he benefited from the deal, his firm did not bag $2m as purported in the news but rather a $100,000.
Mr. Baako also clarified that payment for the services of Gabby Asare Otchere Darko’s law firm, Africa Legal Associates was made by the main transactional adviser and not the government of Ghana.
He said that the Africa Legal Associates were working for a UK-based law firm who were the main advisors on the deal.
“It is not true that Gabby’s firm got US$2 million from the deal. It is not true that his firm is a beneficiary of US$2 million. It’s not even up to US$105,000. It is the main transaction advisor that paid Gabby. It is about US$103,000. It is not US$2 million”.
Speaking further he commented on the selection of the son of the Senior Minister, Osafo-Maafo as a member of the team, he said,
“We have to be consistent. We have to be coherent. I don’t expect everybody to agree with me and I expect people who disagree to it vehemently, if they like violently, disagree with me and criticize me”.
“The way we’re going around this politics, the so-called conflict of interest relative to political office holders over the period, I see a certain huge area of inconsistency and incoherence and I’m worried about that. This is not going to be the last time this will happen; you bet me!”
