The Narcotics Control Board (NACOB) has denied media reports that former Member of Parliament for Nkoranza North, Mr. Eric Amoateng, who was arrested and jailed in the United States for narcotic offences, is now a board member of NACOB.
A statement issued by the Communications and Media Relations Unit of NACOB on Wednesday, 7 November, said: “The attention of the Narcotics Control Board (NACOB) has been drawn to a purported publication on some social media platforms and local media portals suggesting that the former member of parliament for Nkoranza North Constituency, Mr. Eric Amoateng is a staff/Board member of NACOB.
“NACOB wishes to inform the general public that Mr. Eric Amoateng is not in the employ of NACOB, neither is he a member of the Governing Board. The circulation is, therefore, untrue and must be treated with contempt.”
