A Security analyst with the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre (KAIPTC) Dr. Kwesi Aning has expressed his dislikes for the diplomats in the country labeling them as liars.
He made this comment in a responds to a wikileaks report in 2011 that he described President Akufo Addo as a smoker.
Speaking to Accra based Starr FM, Mr. Aning noted that “That officer who wrote that report needs to be put on trial, my suspicion is that he had misspent that money that was given to entertain and he had to make up stories, I am not that stupid.
“When that story came out I issued a statement backed by the Kofi Annan Institute challenging the American embassy to bring out the tape…if not for anything at all the president is a man who believes in the rule of law and that is a man that I respect,”
In a 2011 report by Wikileaks, stated that Dr. Aning revealed to the US embassy of his knowledge of President Akufo Addo’s drug use.
The report stated that “When asked about rumours of Akufo-Addo’s cocaine use, Kwesi Aning admitted that Akufo-Addo had used drugs in his younger days, but that was now under control.”
He added cryptically that “you can check with German intelligence on that.”
