It follows the public mockery of some distinguished personalities including musicians, politicians and a vice Chancellor who received the awards from the Blueprint Mission.

In a statement, the UN office stated categorically that the UN, neither in Ghana, nor anywhere else, had any affiliation with the Blueprint Global Challenge Awards, nor with the organization (Blueprint Mission), nor its personnel in any way, shape or form.

The statement said that UN Information Centre follows strict rules, notices and procedures in disseminating information.

The organizer Kwame Fodjour claims he has the mandate to reward deserving citizens who have distinguished themselves in various fields to honour the memory of former UN boss Kofi Annan.

But further checks have revealed that the awards were fake. It has also emerged that the UN is not affiliated to the award organizers.
