Minister of Communications, Dr. Edward Omane Boamah has dismissed reports that the 32-year-old Nayeli Ametefeh who was busted at the Heathrow Airport in London for carrying cocaine was traveling on a Ghanaian Diplomatic passport.
“I want to state here and now that the lady, Nayeli Ametefeh did not travel on a Ghanaian passport,” he said on Metro TV’s, “Good Morning Ghana” programme.
Nayeli Ametefeh was said to be traveling on a Diplomatic Passport during her arrest but the Minister of Communications is of the view that “for someone to suggest she did not travel even with a Ghanaian passport but a Diplomatic Passport is something we have to take seriously”.
The lady was traveling on an Austria Passport with number P4187659 and not even a Ghana Passport even though she has one “so all those talking about diplomatic Passports must revise their notes; enough of the disinformation”.
According to Dr. Omane Boamah, the lady is not called Ruby as widely circulated and further questioned the rationale behind the association of Nayeli Ametefe to the first family.
“…then those who want to profit from it by associating the first family…how? Why would anyone want to associate the first family with this? He quizzed.
