The United Nations (UN) has strongly reacted to the trending Dr. UN’s fake awards saga in Ghana.
In a press statement issued on September 6, 2020 via twitter, the international body disassociated itself from the awards scheme challenging its authenticity and stating point-blank that it has nothing to do with its organizers.
“The @UNinGhana has no affiliation with the Blue Print Global Challenge Awards nor with the Organizers” the statement indicated.
The international body has since advised the general public to be vigilant by frequently visiting their website and relevant UN agencies/UN-Ghana websites (Visit; https://ghana.un.org/en) to get updated on their activities instead of being gullible and or allowing themselves to be swayed by charlatans and some of these scandalous acts.
The news regarding Dr. Kwame Owusu Fordjour alias Dr. UN has been trending for the past few days. On Friday, August 28, 2020, Blue Prints Global Awards Challenge scandalously coaxed some Ghanaian personalities into believing that they were being honoured by the UN for accomplishments in their respective fields of endeavour through an award scheme dubbed the 7th Edition of the Global Leadership Service to Humanity.
Some of the victimized personalities included The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ghana, Professor Ebenezer Oduro Owusu; Founder of local Ghanaian automobile manufacturing company, KANTANKA Motors, Apostle Safo Kantanka; TV Host Berla Mundi (TV 3); Joy Fm’s sports journalist, Nathaniel Attoh; TV 3’s News Anchor Natalie Fort; Popular musicians Sarkodie, D-Black and many others.
After receiving the awards, some of the winners, especially the TV personalities and musicians, took to social media to flaunt “their prestigious prizes” only to be met with heavy trolling and shades throwing by their fans and followers. Chief among their jibes was that the plaques received by these celebs/politicians were cocktail mixers decorated with metallic gold spray.
