Former President John Dramani Mahama has urged the public to disregard “scurrilous statements” by the Member of Parliament of Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong linking him to the death of J.B. Danquah Adu, a former Member of Parliament for Abuakwa North.

A statement signed by Joyce Bawah Mogtari, the Special Aide of Mr Mahama said there is no iota of truth in the allegations which are a figment of fevered imaginations.

The statement said it was not logical that Mr Agyapong would have such information and refuse to present it to the investigative authorities.

“While President Mahama does not intend to lend any dignity to the usual rants of Kennedy Agyapong, I am instructed to deny all the claims he made on his tv station, seeking as always to denigrate the person and reputation of the former president. There is no iota of truth in the allegations, they are complete fabrications and figment of fevered imaginations,” the statement said.

“It makes no logical sense that a man who has tried all these years to denigrate the person of the former President, would have such information and will for almost three years since his party has been in office not present it to the investigative authorities?

“This is the same person who over the years has made similar scurrilous allegations against other persons he has accused with the same offence. Where did this new information he claims to have, come from?”.

[Press Statement] Ignore the rants of Kennedy Agyapong

The attention of the leader and flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress, former President John Dramani Mahama, has been drawn to yet another set of scurrilous statements made by a member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kennedy Agyapong, on Net2 TV seeking to link him to the unfortunate death of J.B. Danquah Adu, a former Member of Parliament for Abuakwa North.

While President Mahama does not intend to lend any dignity to the usual rants of Kennedy Agyapong, I am instructed to deny all the claims he made on his tv station, seeking as always to denigrate the person and reputation of the former president. There is no iota of truth in the allegations, they are complete fabrications and figment of fevered imaginations.

It makes no logical sense that a man who has tried all these years to denigrate the person of the former President, would have such information and will for almost three years since his party has been in office not present it to the investigative authorities?

This is the same person who over the years has made similar scurrilous allegations against other persons he has accused with the same offence. Where did this new information he claims to have, come from?

Ghanaians are today confronted, in their daily lives, with high cost of living, job losses, collapsing businesses, depreciating incomes, poor governance by Nana Akufo-Addo and a state of insecurity at very monumental levels. Ghanaians are looking for solutions to their problems.

Therefore, Mr. Agyapong and his party should concentrate their energies on dealing with these problems and stop trying to divert attention.

President Mahama remains focused on advocating an alternative and sincere working government and would urge the good people of Ghana to treat the vituperations of Mr. Agyapong with utmost contempt.
