Convener for the Pensioner Bondholders, Dr Adu Anane Antwi, has debunked rumours that he had received life-threatening messages due to his advocacy for pensioners demanding exemption from the government’s domestic debt exchange programme.
Dr. Antwi in a disclaimer said he had never received a threatening message during his activities and advocacy that led to the exemption of pensioners from the debt restructuring programme.
“My attention has been drawn to a tweet by one Promise Dumevi on 16th February 2023, circulating on social media attributing the following statement to me: I have received a lot of threat messages warning me to stay away from the ongoing picketing at the finance ministry. But I want to assure them that I cannot be silenced or give-up on my lifelong savings until I die.”

He added that “I wish to inform the general public that this information is false as I have not received any threat messages, and have not said anywhere that I have received any threat messages that warned me to stay away from the picketing of pensioners at the finance ministry The general public is advised to disregard the information.”
