The office of former President John Kufuor has denied reportage claiming the former stateman has written to the Chief of Staff to forfeit six months of his salary following the recent economic hardship in the country.
According to a communique from the office of former President John Agyekum Kufuor, the reportage is fake and has no truth in the matter.
The disclaimer comes after news broke up that the former president had written to the Chief of Staff to forfeit six months of his salary.
“The attention of the office of former President John Kufuor has been drawn to a fake reportage on social media and in some sections of the traditional media to the effect that President Kufuor has written to the Chief of Staff at the Presidency to request that six months of his salary should be forfeited to the state.
“This office wants to emphatically state that the reportage is fake and should be treated with the contempt that it deserves,” a signed by his special aide, Dr Kwabena Osei Adubofour debunks.
The statement further explains that “We are at a loss as to the object of such reportage and call for rational reflection on the use of the present avenues of communication that the digital age affords all of us.”
This, it called on the general public to treat the news with the contempt it deserves because it contains no iota of truth because the supposed communique presumes to have come from the office of the former president will never get his name spelt wrongly.
