The Office of the Former President John Agyekum Kuffour via a letter issued on Wednesday, 22nd June, 2022 by Dr Kwabena Osei- Adubofour Senior Aide & Spokesman for former President has strongly denied endorsing Vice President Bawumia as the next Presidential candidate of NPP. On Sunday June 19th during the father’ s day celebration, it was reported that Ex President Kuffour has endorsed and chosen Vice President Bawumia to lead NPP in 2014.
However, the former President’ s office has emphasized that nothing of a sort happened. For avoidance of doubt, the letter clearly clarified that Ex President Kuffour has never decided on whom to lead NPP as reported.
” The attention of the Office of Former President lohn Kufuor has been drawn to an erroneous reportage in some sections of the media, especially on social media, to the effect that President Kufuor has endorsed an aspiring candidate for the NPP flagbearership over several others who have expressed interest to contest in the race. ” Ex President Kuffour only expressed his fatherly love to Bawumia without any political gimmicks.
” This Office wants to emphatically deny that any such endorsement took place on the said occasion and bemoans the fact that what transpired has been seriously misconstrued. Former President Kufuor and Vice- president Dr Mahamudu Bawumia were both guests of honour at a Father’s Day soiree that was organized by the Peduase Valley Resort premises”
Ex President Akuffo would like to state that all the other aspiring New Patriotic Party candidates are either of his son’s or younger brothers so he won’t make any attempt to discriminate. To him, he believes that among the likes of Bawumia, Mr. Akoto, Alan Kyeremanteng and the others are capable of leading NPPNto victory if elected as flagbearer.
