But in short statement on the matter, he denied ever handling visa application for government officials under his tenure as chief of staff or for individuals.

He further suggested that the allegation being made against him could be government propaganda, citing past news reports were he has alleged to have been involved in wrongdoing.

He said: "The Chief of Staff does not apply for visas for government delegation when travelling. It's the office of the Director of State Protocol that has that responsibility. And throughout my tenure of office as Chief of Staff, I personally never applied for visa for anybody.

And never do I recall ever sending or facilitating the travelling of party supporters with the motive as sojourners. I have never used the office of President to acquire a visa for anybody not a single person because I never got involved with matters of visas acquisition. Even known drug dealers are not banned from 7 countries, let alone a former Chief of Staff to the President?

However, as has always been my approach I usually leave matters of such nature to my maker. He has a better way of handling them. Never forget that anytime the devil attacks you, he knows that you are a potential goal scorer. I was born a winner and no man can change my destiny.

Thank you very much for your love and God bless you. And also don't forget that a few months ago I was alleged to have received over 40.5 million cedis from BOST into my private account at Fidelity Bank, purchased bulletproof vehicles for President Nana Addo, withdrew the 10% deductions from the salaries of former ministers for private purposes, the list can go on and on and on."
