The National Security has challenged the Convenor of FixTheCountry Movement, Oliver Barker-Vormawor to produce evidence of an alleged attempt by the government to induce him and others with an amount of $1 million so they cease his “activism”.
This follows Thursday’s allegation by Barker-Vormawor that Cabinet promised them a million dollars if they could stop the #OccupyJulorBiHouse demonstrations.
Since they want it this way we will talk .
The cabinet promised us $1 million if only we can stop the demonstration. We rejected!

The allegation by FixTheCountry
Mr. Barker-Vormawor claimed, in a statement to journalists on September 22, that he and his colleagues turned down the offer after meeting with the National Security Minister in a covert location.
But the Ministry in a statement issued on Friday, September 22 acknowledged a meeting with the conveners of the FixTheCountry movement together with Ministers for National Security, Finance, and other relevant stakeholders, in 2021 to listen to their concerns.
They, however, stated emphatically that no offer of money or appointment was made to persuade the group to end its “activism”.
The Ministry, therefore, debunked claims of inducement by Barker-Vormawor.
“The allegations made by Oliver Barker-Vormawor are thus false, unfounded, and a calculated attempt to hoodwink Ghanaians,” portions of the statement clarified.
The National Security Ministry therefore urged the public to ignore the allegations and treat them with the utmost contempt they deserve.
