President Akufo-Addo has instructed the Ministry of Finance to payback an amount of $45,000 to former Ghanaian World Boxing Champion, D.K. Poison.
It's reported that D.K Poison borrowed the state $45,000 in 1976 after being persuaded by then Head of State, Col. Ignatius Kutu Acheampong.
The money was used to import mackerel into the country to mitigate the harsh economic conditions in Ghana at the time.
However, all attempts by the former boxer to retrieve his money from the state under successive governments proved futile until president Akufo-Addo finally came to his rescue.
