Spokesperson for former President John Agyekum Kufuor, Frank Agyekum, has debunked claims that the former President sent a delegation to the residence of Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo, the 2012 flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), to dissuade him from continuing with the election petition case currently on-going at the Supreme Court.
Monday, 6th April edition of the Informer newspaper under the headline: “Discontinue Court Case. Kufuor Tells Akufo-Addo”, said former President Kufuor asked Nana Addo to discontinue the court case because the live telecast of the court proceedings was exposing the NPP to public ridicule.
But speaking on Peace FM, an Accra-based radio station, Frank Agyekum asked that the story be ignored because ‘they are mere fabrications’.
“I find this very laughable because I can’t see the head and tail of the story. I don’t know where the Informer got such information from. It is not true. Nothing like that has happened. Former President Kufuor has not sent anybody to Nana Akufo-Addo to discuss such issues,” he asserted.
Mr Agyekum rather indicated that the former President was excited about the case at the Supreme Court and backed everything Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, the Vice Presidential candidate, had said in the witness box so far.
“He is rather happy and backs everything happening at the Supreme Court because he knows it is going in our favour. Ghanaians should not pay attention to such unfounded allegations. They are all fabrications. They (NDC) are just saying all these things because of fear and it should be ignored….we are not afraid at all. As for Informer and all the pro-NDC newspapers, they should go on deceiving themselves,” he stated.
