Minister, ex-minister clash over sex tape

Former Information Minister Stephen Asamoah Boateng has warned Deputy Minister for Central Region and Member of Parliament for Mfantseman West to leave him out of the brouhaha arising out of his 'sexcapedes' which have been caught on tape.

Deputy Central Region Minister Aquinas Tawiah-Quansah has been caught on tape quite naked and engaged in sexual antics with a lady reputed to be about twenty years old.

According to the former information minister, his attention was drawn to an allegation from the deputy minister that he is behind the circulation of a supposed sex video in circulation in which it is believed that the minister is the male sex partner.

Mr. Asamoah Boateng said in the statement again that the allegation from Hon. Aquinas Tawiah-Quansah on the website for Radio XYZ and also in The Herald newspaper and on several other websites is a desperate attempt by Hon. Aquinas and his cohorts to put out fake text messages allegedly emanating from him Mr. Asamoah Boateng.

Mr. Asamoah Boateng said in the statement that he wants to put on-record that Hon. Aquinas Tawiah-Quansah allegations are not only untrue and spurious but also a figment of his own imagination and he is therefore asking him to leave his name out of this apparent embarrassment he finds himself in a and carry his own cross.

In the statement the former information minister said he has not seen the said sex video and he cannot be said to be the one circulating a video he has not seen.

He said that he is focus on his campaign within the constituency propagating the good message of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) as he looks up unto the Lord for his blessing on his parliamentary ambitions.

“I firmly believe it is only God who will give me the nod to serve my people; it is therefore not true that I am behind the circulation of the video and I consider it unfair for Aquinas Tawiah-Quansah and his cohorts to drag my name into this scandal when he knows very well I was neither part of his love-connections nor present when he did whatever he is alleged to have done in the said video. I was not and do not wish to be part of it in any away,” said the statement.

He then suggested to Hon. Aquinas Tawiah-Quansah to focus on the issues and address them directly rather than playing politics with it.
