The National Communication Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) says reports alleging that he spent thousands of dollars of his party's funds on a lavish trip to Miami, USA, with his wife “ridiculous”.

Sammy Gyamfi also said the claims are  “nonsensical”.

He admitted to Adom TV in an interview that he had visited Miami but denied ever spending $3,000 per night at a hotel or receiving $42,000 from the party as widely speculated.

"On Saturday, I was at Holy Spirit Cathedral for Mawuena Trebarh’s funeral. So, how could I have been chilling in Miami? On Sunday, I was at Suame for the regional organizer for Ashanti, Chairman Alhassan’s mother’s funeral. 

"Even before that, on Wednesday, I was in Accra hosting NDC 360 from our studios. Everyone watched me. 

"I was on set with Honourable Jinapor discussing the power sector and Free SHS. On Thursday, I was in the High Court supporting my good brother and friend, the minority leader, Honourable Ato Forson. So, when could I have been in Miami at an expensive hotel?" Gyamfi asked. 

The NDC communications officer claimed that the story was an attempt to tarnish his reputation due to his criticisms of the government. He announced plans to take legal action against the media houses that published the story.
