A Board Member of the Power Distribution Services (PDS), Philip Ayesu, has denied having any conversation with legal practitioner and NPP member, Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko concerning shares of PDS.
A story published by Ghanaweb.com had suggested that there was an audio recording of a purported conversation between Mr. Ayesu and Mr. Okertchiri-Darko in which the latter supposedly impressed upon the former to reduce his shares in PDS.
According to the Ghanaweb report, Mr. Otchere-Darko had asked Mr. Ayesu to reduce his shares from 40 percent.
But Mr. Ayesu in a statement denied the claims, saying the voice recording was fake.
According to him, “I would like to put on record that this is a mischievous and totally fabricated story.”
“It never happened. I have never hazarded the thought of owning 40% of the shares in PDS, and never owned anything close to that amount of shares in PDS for any person to have suggested to me for my shares to be reduced below 40%, and the records faithfully attest to this,” he said.
He added that “I have never discussed any such thing with my lawyers or other shareholders, let alone with a third party.”
