The Ministry of National Security has denied claims by the convenor of the FixTheCountry Movement that a US$1 million offer was made to them to suspend their protest on Thursday.

Mawuse Oliver Barker-Vormawor alleged that a prominent government official offered the money at a meeting to the movement and allied organisations to halt the protest against the lingering economic crisis.

“They offered to set up a committee and appoint us as members in order to stop this activism,” Barker-Vormawor said. “This was made directly to me and other leaders of FixTheCountry, which we refused.”

“This conversation was held with the minister of national security, minister of finance, and a Brigadier-General of the Ghana Armed Forces at a safe house at Cantonment,” Barker-Vormawor told Metro TV.

However, a statement issued by the national security ministry described the allegations as false, unfounded, and a calculated attempt to hoodwink Ghanaians.
