National Communications Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress, Sammy Gyamfi has denied flying his wife for an extravagant vacation some 6 months to the general elections.

Social media over the weekend has been awash with videos of the lawyer and his wife in a purported trip to Miami.

The allegations picked up by some news portals have increased debates on his source of wealth amidst complaints of difficult times in the country.

In a quick-fire rebuttal however, Sammy Gyamfi asserts that the claims are “baseless and senseless”.

In an interview on Adom TV, he further described the assertions as ‘ridiculous and purely nonsensical’.

“These are just lies from demented minds. At the time they wrote the story, they wrote the story I believe Friday or Saturday. Saturday I was at Mawuena Trebarh’s funeral, Sunday I was at Suame for our Regional Organiser’s mother’s funeral, even on Wednesday I was in Accra here for hosting NDC 360 and was in the High Court on Thursday with Dr Ato Forson.

So when was I in Miami and that NDC had given me 42,000 dollars? So, it’s just ridiculous, just purely nonsensical.”

“This is just foolishness because I’ve never been to the hotel they are talking about, I know nothing about that hotel. I’ve never stayed in Miami for two weeks. I’ve been in Miami a couple of times just like other States in the US, including Miami a couple of times,” he said.

Sammy Gyamfi has further threatened to sue the individuals behind the spread of the allegation.

“These are some unemployed NPP foot soldiers who have been paid to do that so, you cannot even hold them responsible. However, there are some people who will be taking on relative to this matter and the issues will be settled in court,” he threatened.
