Mr. Dennis Miracles Aboagye, the Director of Local Government Services at the Office of the President, has apologized to Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, the National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), for sharing an altered video of him.
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) member had shared a video of the NDC Chairman purportedly urging his supporters to risk their lives in the 2024 general elections.
However, Mr Aboagye has since apologized and clarified that the video he saw and shared had been doctored.
He subsequently withdrew the earlier post and expressed remorse for any misunderstanding caused.
He tweeted: “I sincerely apologize and have subsequently removed the Asiedu Nketia Video I shared earlier. My attention has been drawn to an original video that clearly shows the earlier one I viewed and shared was doctored. Obviously, this version I saw and shared had been tampered with, which isn’t right. I withdraw accordingly, with apologies.”
Aboagye had shared the video in reaction to comments made by Mr Bryan Acheampong, the Member of Parliament for Abetifi, who had declared that he and the NPP would not relinquish political power to the opposition NDC.
