The “Vickyleaks saga” shook the nation in November 2013 and resulted in the ouster of Mahama’s deputy communications minister.
When Victoria Hammah was heard on a recording that was released saying she would leave politics if she had $1 million on hand, the former president John Dramani Mahama fired her.
After the former Deputy Communications Minister was fired, her driver was taken into custody. He is thought to have taped the conversation that was released.
She asserts that she respected Mahama’s choice, but she believed the media didn’t treat her fairly.

According to a government statement released on Friday morning, President John Dramani Mahama has fired Deputy Communications Minister Victoria Hammah.
On a tape that was allegedly leaked, Victoria Hammah is heard telling a female interlocutor that she won’t leave politics until she earns at least $1 million USD.
The two women are also heard on the released secret audio tape brutally criticising Rachel Appoh, the deputy minister of gender, children, and social protection, for stoking negative press against her boss, Nana Oye Lithur. The two women, who looked to be travelling while having the gossipy conversation, are also heard criticising Nana Oye Lithur.
