The presidency has, however, denied any knowledge of the matter and queried the Minister, Alan Kyerematen to explain.

Since the matter became public Mr. Kyerematen has maintained that government was only a facilitator for the event and that the presidency was not connected to it.

Meanwhile, information revealed later was that, though some monies were taken, they were not at the command of the presidency but as a fundraising mechanism of the organizers of other events, Millennium Excellence Foundation (MEF).
