The woman sighted in the supposed bribe video of President Akufo-Addo taking $40,000 in a brown envelope that went viral days ago has broken silence in the latest interview on Asaase Radio.
As stated by the woman identified as Hajia Fawzia Karim, the said video was recorded in 2016 when the Akufo-Ado was the presidential candidate for then opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP).

Hajia Fawzia revealed.
Just like Kweku Baako’s claims, Hajia Fawzia suspects the video was recorded by Salis Yakubu Atsuluho of the Salis Newspaper.
