Purported Certificate saga
The certificate was first shared by National Communications officer of the National Democratic Congress [NDC], Sammy Gyamfi in his response to a recent political ‘boom’ by Acheampong, who is also Member of Parliament for Abetifi.

Sammy Gyamfi in reacting to the comments via a Facebook post, described them as “ludicrous tantrums.”
He attached two photos, one of the said certificate and the other a brochure of the US Air Force in which Acheampong is captured along with others.

Gyamfi, through his post also stressed the importance of sovereignty to drive home the point that power rested with the people and not with a political party.

He also took a swipe at the military background of the minister who served for two years in the US Air Force.
“Ignore the ludicrous tantrums of Bryan Acheampong. Sovereignty resides in the people and not in a man who only served as a mere Airman Basic (the lowest enlisted rank in the United States Air Force immediately below airman) for about 2 years.

“Majority of the Ghanaian electorate will surely vote for change come 2024 and nobody can subvert their will.

“If Bryan and his ilk are motivated by getting away with the evil they perpetrated during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-elections and the 2020 elections, then they are sorely mistaken, for it will not be business as usual. Notice is hereby served,” his post read.
