Founder of the controversial UN leadership award scheme and the Global Blueprint Excellence Award popularly known as ‘Dr. UN’ is reported to have been arrested by officials of the National Security officials in the Ashanti Regional capital, Kumasi.
He was arrested on the premises of Kumasi based Hello-FM by plain-clothed police personnel.
According to reports, ‘Dr. UN’ has been on the radar of the security agencies for quite some time now, after a fake award ceremony he organized at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.
He has therefore been remanded for two weeks in police custody.
Kwame Owusu Fordjour’s gained more popularity and was subjected to scrutiny after he recently awarded some celebrities, government officials and leading politicians in the country.
Among such astute personalities are Sarkodie, Berla Mundi, Ekow Vincent, John Boadu, the Vice-Chancellor for the University of Ghana. Ekow Vincent Assafuah, Old Tafo Parliamentary Candidate for the NPP.
However, after several investigations, the scheme was exposed to be a scam for using the United Nations and a former UN General Secretary, Kofi Annan’s name to make the award scheme appear credible.
