The Office of John Agyekum Kufuor has denied reports suggesting that the former president is forfeiting six months of his salary.
Earlier report suggests the former president had written to the Chief of Staff at the Office of the President to request that six months of his salary should be forfeited to the state.
Kufuor’s office has asked the public to disregard the false report.
“The attention of the Office of former President John Agyekum Kufuor has been drawn to a fake reportage on social media and in some sections of 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,” the statement said.
T”his office wants to emphatically state that the reportage is fake and should be treated with the contempt that it deserves. We are at loss as to the object of such reportage and call for rational reflection on the use of present avenues of communication that the digital age affords all of us,” the statement added.
