Haruna Iddrisu has said that the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) and Aker Energy bribery accusations against him are malicious and not true. “I wish to place on record that the publications under reference is spurious, malicious, and baseless and a figment of imagination of the ghost writer. The fact that the writer mysteriously omitted his by-line shows his or ger malevolent intent and points to the fact that the publication is a fabrication. I wonder why the writer will want to hide under the cloak of anonymity if he or she were confident of his news story,” the minority leader stated.
He insisted that he has never been involved in bribery, and the publication is aiming at ruining his name. “I implore my colleague member of the NDC Caucus in Parliament to disregard this attempt by what is obviously the work of unseen hands to create disfavor and disaffection for me personally.”
“I demand that the Herald retracts the said publication and render an unqualified apology with the same prominence as the said malicious publication within 24 hours failing which notice is hereby served that I have instructed my lawyers to assess all possible grounds that this publication offers for a legal suit against the Herald newspaper, the writer of the story and all the hidden faces behind such a wicked and politically motivated publication against my person.”
