Nana Addo demands apology for false publication

The 2016 flagbearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo-Addo is demanding an unqualified apology from the  Daily Post newspaper for publishing a story saying, he killed his wife.

Nana Addo denied the report that he killed his first wife, Obaa Yaa Nkansah Dwamena in 1993. “It is tragic that our politics should sink to such levels that there appears to be nothing sacred, nor any respect for our cultural values in our society; and people would want to use the death of a loved one to defame a political opponent,” a statement signed by Nana Addo’s Press Secretary, Eugene Arhin said.

“This story is nothing but a vile, repugnant and tasteless fabrication. We demand an unconditional and immediate retraction of story…,” the statement added.

Below is the full statement from his press secretary:

The attention of the Office of Nana Akufo-Addo has been drawn, once again, to a false and defamatory publication in the Daily Post newspaper of Wednesday, January 27, 2015.

The story, whose headline has been written under the guise of a question and allegedly sourced from a non-existent newspaper called the ‘New Patriot’, states emphatically that Nana Akufo-Addo murdered his first wife, Obaa Yaa Nkansah Dwamena, on 17th August, 1993.

It is tragic that our politics should sink to such levels that there appears to be nothing sacred, nor any respect for our cultural values in our society; and people would want to use the death of a loved one to defame a political opponent.

This story is nothing but a vile, repugnant and tasteless fabrication. We demand an unconditional and immediate retraction of story in the next edition of the paper, which comes out on Thursday, January 28, 2015. This retraction must be given the same prominence as was given to the earlier story.

Eugene Arhin

Press Secretary
