UK Visa Fraud: My daughter tricked me and overstayed - Former MP - Sankofa Online : Serving the Ghanaian Community of Chicago

George Boakye, former Member of Parliament for Asunafo South Constituency
UK Visa Fraud: My daughter tricked me and overstayed - Former MP Source: citifmonline.com The former Member of Parliament for Asunafo South Constituency, George Boakye, has said that his 37-year-old daughter tricked him into taking her to London under the pretext of going to see her uncle, but disappeared on their arrival in the UK. According to him, although he knew he was being irresponsible by not reporting his daughter's disappearance once he couldn't find her, he feared a report to security officials would have her incarcerated. Mr Boakye is highly unlikely to be issued any further visas to visit the UK in the next ten years for his role in facilitating his daughter's travel to the UK, including should he be re-elected to Parliament in a subsequent election. But according to Mr. Boakye, the development was not his fault. In a rather interesting Citi News interview, the former MP said he lost contact with his daughter after she left that house where she had gone to visit an Uncle that he the MP couldn't even identify. Mr. George Boakye further said that he was contacted by the Embassy in December 2016 over the stay of his daughter in that country, but he pleaded that they allowed him attend to election-related issues. He noted that he finally made contact with his daughter after the election, and instructed her to return to Ghana over the potential harm her illegal stay in the UK could do to his reputation. "After the elections, I intensified my search and I was able to get to one of her friends and I managed to get her address from her friend. I called her and she responded, so on the phone I even cursed her, and told her that if she did not come to Ghana, it will not auger well for her because it will dent my image in the country so she should come," he said.
