Kufuor denounces Ken Agyapong’s allegations
Former President John Agyekum Kufuor, has rejected “as absolute falsehood and malicious” remarks made by Kennedy Agyapong, that the former President drove him out of his residence in 2007, for not backing the candidature of Alan Kyeremateng ahead of the 2008 elections.
In a press statement issued Thursday September 26, and signed by Frank Agyekum, President Kufuor’s Special Aide, the former President stated 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 Assin North Member of Parliament, Ken Agyapong, also claimed that the former President relieved Dr Kofi Addah, former Minister of Energy of his post for the same reason reason.
But President Kufuor said “the reasons for which he lost his post are well known to him (Mr Addah) and had nothing to do with his support for Mr Kyeremateng or any other candidate. Dr Addah must come out and verify.”
The former President has cautioned 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”, the statement said.
He said party members must at all times be minded of the core values of the party because that has been its distinctive feature and helped to sustain it for the past 60 years.
President Kufuor said there is the need for the party to strengthen its “structures to help wrest power in 2016 and not do things that will dissipate our energies.”
