Kufuor Denies Agyapong’s Allegations
The Office of former President John Agyekum Kufuor has described as absolute falsehood and malicious, remarks by Kennedy Agyapong, MP for Assin Central that he was walked out of the former President’s residence.
Mr Agyapong was said to have said on a radio interview that the former President walked him out of his house because he failed to support the presidential bid of Alan Kyrematen, former Minister of Trade and Industries; and that the former President relieved Kofi Adda, former Minister of Energy of his post for the same reason.
In a statement issued from New York in the United States, Frank Agyekum, Spokesperson/Special Aide, to the former President said his boss was emphatic that no such discussion took place between him and Mr Agyapong and therefore the said incident could not have happened.
‘Mr Agyapong’s assertion can just not be true,’ the statement said.
As regards to Dr Adda, Mr Kufuor says the reasons for which the former Energy Minister lost his post are well known to him and had nothing to do with his support for Mr Kyerematen or any other candidate. ‘Dr Adda must come out and verify,’ the statement said.
The former President cautions members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to refrain from making reckless statements that have no foundation in truth and only serve to tear members apart.
‘Members must do things that will help consolidate the party’s front and woo outsiders into its fold instead of doing things that create disunity and confusion. If we are able to do this now, we stand in a good position to win the future.
‘Members must at all times be minded of the core values of the party that has been its distinctive feature and helped to sustain it for the past 60 years even as we strengthen our structures to help wrest power in 2016 and not do things that will dissipate our energies,’ the statement added.
