Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has urged the public to report to the police persons fraudulently using his name on social media to solicit illegal payments from the public.
“I urge you to ignore
or report to the police any such persons soliciting payments in my name,”
he said in a tweet. “I have notified the National Security apparatus to
investigate and apprehend such fraudsters.”
The Minister said he did not solicit for nor provide any protocol opportunities to people either in person or via social media.
Mr. Nkrumah issued the disclaimer following reports that a good number of people are falling victim to activities of fraudsters on social media using his name.
