Reports that former President John Agyekum Kufour is dead are malicious and false, his office has responded.
A press release by the office revealed that the former president is “very much alive and well.”
Dr. Kwabena Osei-Adubofour, Senior Aide and Spokesperson of the former president who issued the release said the office has been “inundated with persistent rumours” of Kufuor’s death.
“We wish to categorically deny such occurrence and state emphatically that the former president is very much alive and well,” it said.
The office further asked the general public to “disabuse their minds of these malicious and uncanny rumours that spring out of nothing.”
It asked those circulating the malicious rumours to “desist from them henceforth.”
“We can only speculate that the perpetrators do so out of mischief-making and possibly for unfathomable political purposes,” the release said.
