The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia would not attend the much publicised 7th edition of the Adonko RTP awards, his office has established.
The Radio and Television Personality Awards (RTP Awards) has over the years honoured radio and television presenters across the country.
There has been an advertisement by the organisers, running over a month, that said the Vice President would join other high profile personalities at this year’s awards.
Former President John Dramani Mahama and Rev. Dr. Boadi Nyamekye, Founder and Leader of Makers House Chapel, were mentioned as some of the dignitaries set to grace the occasion.
But in a Facebook post, the Director of Communications at the Office of the Vice President, Frank Agyei-Twum, was clear that Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia would not take part in the event.
“The Vice President has nothing to do with the 2017 RTP awards and will not be present at the said ceremony,” the post read.
The RTP Awards is organised by Big Events Ghana Limited and it is expected to be held this month.
Meanwhile, manager of the Swedru-based artiste, Patapaa, says the artiste will not perform at RTP Awards slated for this month.
Godfred Bokpin is reported to have said the ‘One Corner’ hitmaker, there is no contract between them and organisers of the Awards.
