Ghana Gas has discredited the allegations that $500 and €590 were taken from their officials during the Russia-Africa Summit. They have stated that their officials were not subjected to any such thing during the event.
According to Ghana Gas’ Head of Corporate Communications, Ernest Kofi Owusu-Bempah Bonsu, the company never had an official representation at the meeting in question, and therefore, the publication is “baseless.”
“The company wishes to state unequivocally that there has never been any such incident as was reported by Ghanaweb online on July 31, 2023. Indeed, Ghana Gas had no official representation at the Russia-Africa summit, and as such, the claims of missing funds involving our officials can best be described as baseless and complete falsehood,” the statement clarified.
The Ghana Gas has taken the opportunity to ask the media to be guided by the principles of their profession. They are requesting that issues be verified before they are published to prevent any institution’s reputation from being unfairly tarnished.
“We caution the media to be circumspect with their reportage, verification of facts and cross checking, so as not to harm the reputation of innocent individuals and organizations,” the statement included.
Ghana Gas is demanding that Ghanaweb retract the earlier information that the company says is misleading.
