Asiedu Nketia denied ever issuing such a letter and stated that the said letter is fake and just an attempt to distract the general public from more pressing issues.
“My attention has been drawn to a fraudulent fake letter on the selection of the 2020 NDC Running Mate, purported to be signed and issued by me. First of all, I have not issued any such statement. The general public is therefore advised to ignore any such frivolous and fictitious letter."
Asiedu Nketia, in the statement, also rejected claims of the formation of a special committee for considering the party’s running mate hopefuls.
