United Nations in Ghana has finally reacted to Dr Kwame Fodjour’s fake UN Awards that is making all the buzz on the internet.
It could be recalled on August 28, 2020, that a host of Ghanaian personalities were honoured for their accomplishments in their various fields of endeavour.
Chairman Wontumi, Sarkodie, Daughter of Glorious Jesus, Berla Mundi, DJ DBlack among others were honoured.
Global Leadership Service to Humanity Awards is the name of the award scheme and though the UN has no hand in it, it was made to look like UN-owned event.
The awardees were presented with plaques of “UN Kofi Annan Excellence Awards” which drew a link between the scheme, the UN and the late Kofi Annan.
It appeared the supposed UN Award was a scam after social media users and a group of young journalists did thorough research on the credibility of the award.
The mastermind behind the ‘fake UN award’ is a man identified as Dr Kwame Fodjour aka Dr UN.
Dr Kwame Fodjour has stated on several platforms that his Award scheme is credibility and rubbished claims that his award scheme was fake.
United Nations in Ghana has finally addressed the issue pertaining to Dr Kwame Fodjour’s fake UN Awards.
