The Asogli State Council has responded to some allegations made by the host of Metro TV’s Good evening Ghana, Paul Adom-Otchere, following the rejection of ex-gratia by Togbe Afede.
The TV host , opined that the Agbogbomefia of the Asogli State Togbe Afede XIV has more money to refund to the state than the GHC365,000 ex-gratia he rejected.
The statement from the Council said, “our attention has been drawn to comments and allegations made by one Paul Adom-Otchere in his Good Evening Ghana programme on Metro TV on June 7, 2022, during his discussion of Togbe Afede XIV’s rejection of ex-Gratia payment made to him.”
The traditional council said it ordinarily would not have responded to comments from Paul Adom-Otchere, “knowing who he is, but while we ponder a more suitable reaction, specific allegations he made cannot be ignored.”
It was the case of the Council that the numbers Paul Adom-Otchere presented on Togbe’s attendance at meetings of the Council of State are both incorrect and misleading, and are a disingenuous attempt to discredit Togbe’s performance at the Council.
The Council challenged the TV host to provide evidence to his claims.
“The Council had three committees, one of which Togbe chaired, the Economy and Special Development Initiatives Committee. And Togbe had an excellent plenary meeting attendance record,” it added.
