Kwame Owusu Fordjour, the founder and organiser of the controversial leadership award scheme, titled “Global Blueprint Excellence Award” has debunked allegations that the award scheme is a scam.
This comes after Kwame Owusu Fordjour was accused of using the United Nations and former UN General Secretary, Kofi Annan’s name to make the award scheme appear credible.
The alleged fake award, was presented to celebrated Ghanaians including Sarkodie, D Black, Berla Mundi, Natalie Fort, DJ Black, Nathaniel Attoh and many others.
The awards ceremony was reportedly held on August 28, 2020, at Alisa Hotel in Accra.
There have been a lot of reactions on social media in relation to this, as Ghanaians are questioning why the recipients of the award, especially the journalists, could not verify the authenticity of the award scheme.
However, in an interview with JoyNews on Friday, September 5, 2020, Kwame Owusu Fordjour insisted that the award is credible since he is an advocate of development and excellent leadership.
“I am surprised because this is an open thing that we just held. If anybody has a problem with me or our institution, they should have contacted us for clarification.”
“I have always been an advocate for development, excellence and in honouring others and attaching ourselves to global icons and leadership we bring them out,” he stated.
Kwame Owusu Fordjour has also released a statement debunking the allegations. He indicated that a press briefing will be held “in due time” to address the issue.
