….I Know Nothing About Negative Media Against You – Ayariga To Amidu.
The Bawku Central lawmaker is asking the nation’s Special Prosecutor to disregard any negative media reportage directed at him, as he (ayariga) have humbled before him and will always do same as far as life permits him.
Mr Ayariga, who described the Special Prosecutor as his ‘father’, reiterated that he was unaware of any hand, neither has he engaged or granted any interview to any media house, as far as the ongoing investigation surrounding him is concern.
It will be recalled that the onetime presidential spokesperson is under investigations by the office of the special prosecutor headed by Martin A B K Amidu for allegedly evading taxes, thus causing financial loss to the state.
The Vocal MP, however, says there are negative media reportage against Mr Amidu of which he is not only unaware of it authors, but also unhappy. He is therefore calling on his’ father’ to equally disregard same.
Read Ayariga’s statement below.
HON. MAHAMA AYARIGA DISSOCIATES HIMSELF FROM ALL NEGATIVE MEDIA AGAINST MARTIN AMIDU.
I wish to dissociate myself from all negative publications being put out on various media platforms concerning matters that Mr Martin Amidu, Special Prosecutor, is looking into in which I have been mentioned.
I have not granted any interview to any journalist nor instructed anyone to say or do anything in relation to Mr Martin Amidu and his investigations.I have maintained my silence in this matter since it became public. My silence is out of respect for Mr Martin Amidu as a father elevated to the high office of special Prosecutor, a relationship he himself has publicly acknowledged.
An investigation is an investigation. There is binding legal duty to cooperate with lawful investigations. Naturally, I appreciate all well wishers and thank them for their concern and sympathy but I urge caution.
Hon. Mahama Ayariga (MP)
