It seems some malicious individuals and media outlets are spreading rumors of the death of Alhaji Asoma Banda.
The family of the business have since denied all reports of the death of Asomah Banda.
According to a report by Ghanaian online publication, MyNewsGh.com, the Banda family was responding to rumors that the stalwart of the opposition National Democratic Congress has passed away.
The reports of the death of Alhaji Banda first surfaced online on Monday, 14th August.
However, speaking to MyNewsGH.com, one nephew of the businessman, Abu Banda, rubbished the false reports.
He reportedly told the publication, "The old man is alive. He is not dead so kindly disregard the reports".
Abu continued to state that the Banda family would release a statement to the bad reports of death "soon".
He usually makes headlines with his comments on political issues in Ghana and is well-known as an open supporter of the NDC.
