Former President John Agyekum Kufuor says he has not endorsed Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia or any other aspirant seeking to contest for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer-ship race.
“This office wants to emphatically deny that any such endorsement took place on the said occassion and bemaons the fact that what transpired has been seriously misconstrued” – a statement, signed by Dr. Kwabena Osei-Adubofour, Senior Aide and Spokesperson to former President Kufuor indicated.
The office also noted that Mr. Kufuor had always been open about his relationship with Dr. Bawumia.
“…He [Kufuor] had always been close to the Vice President and treated him like a true son. There was nothing political about his remarks or even the occasion. The former President believes that any of those mentioned, when, selected by the party to be the flagbearer, would be able to discharge the work of the flagbearer very firmly and effectively” the statement added.
