Kennedy Agyapong, Assin Central Member of Parliament

The Office of ex-President John Mahama has dismissed some purported comments made by controversial Assin Central Member of Parliament (MP), Kennedy Agyapong on his Net 2 TV network linking the former Commander-In-Chief to the death of Joseph Boakye Danquah-Adu, former Abuakwa North MP .

The former Abuakwa North MP was murdered at his Shiashi residence in Accra in 2016.

Aide to the former President wrote in a statement Saturday that “there is no iota of truth in the allegations [by Mr Agyapong], they are complete fabrications and figment of fevered imaginations.

“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?” it added.

The Office of Mahama has, however, asked Mr Agyapong and the governing NPP to “concentrate their energies on dealing with these problems and stop trying to divert attention.”

“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,” the statement said.
