I'm not in any sex tape - Mahama Ayariga

Bawku Central MP Mahama Ayariga has denied being the “male actor” in a sex video showing a black man and an Asian woman humping away.

The Asian lady is being speculated to be Asia Huang, the recently arrested Chinese ‘galamsey queen’ who, according to editor-in-chief of the New Crusading Guide, Abdul-Malik Kweku Baaku Jr, has been blackmailing “powerful” politicians with a sex tapes.

Clips of the alleged sex video have found their way on social media and being circulated widely.

In one of the clips, the black male in the video is being speculated to be lawmaker Mahama Ayariga, a situation that has forced him to issue the following statement:

I have become aware of the circulation of a video on social media purportedly showing me engaged in a sexual intercourse with a lady of Asian origin.

Those involved in this dastardly and barbaric act seem to suggest that I provided the lady and her company with a licence to engage in "galamsay" mining during my tenure as the Minister of Environment, Science Technology and Innovation in exchange of sexual favours.

I categorically deny the mindless suggestion that I am the male actor in the video and all the inferences it draws. Those who orchestrated this agenda and promoted it have only succeeded in giving us a glimpse of the crude and the unfulfilled lifes they live.

I want to assure the people of Bawku and Ghanaians that I am grateful and respect the opportunity they have given me to serve as their Member of Parliament and the different portfolios I was privileged to work in. The thought that I serve at the behest of the people never departs me, it is what informs and drives every decision I make; this will not change.

In accordance with my Islamic faith, I forgive the architects of this video and agenda, I see these orchestrations as negative campaigning against targeted opponents and an evidence of our debased politics.

Thank you.
