My attention has been drawn to a WhatsApp message circulating under the headline above. I want to state unequivocally that I have made no such declaration for Mr. Alan Kyerematen in the upcoming presidential primaries.
As a matter of concern, this is the second time such malicious fabrication against my person.
As a National Council member, I have been circumspect in my pronouncements about the contest ahead.
At the Conference of Presiding Members, I was in the company of the Hon. Joseph Osei Wusu and Ing. Dr. Nana Ato Arthur where there were no such conversations during and after the conference.
During my days as a DCE, I never worked directly with Mr. Alan Kyerematen because he was not the local government minister. He also had no hand in my appointment to that position.
I have all my life since 1992 been an Akufo-Addo loyalist and for which I can describe our relationship as that of a father and a son. In the 2016 Campaign, I was gracious to have served him as Head of Advance and subsequently in 2017 as Director-General of NADMO in his government. All appointments were done by him without the influence of anybody for which I am eternally grateful.
I would like to by this means send a word of caution to my detractors who believe in scoring political points with their propaganda for their parochial interest in the upcoming parliamentary primaries in the Ahafo Ano North Constituency and beyond.
I know His Excellency Dr. Bawumia personally and consider him a great friend and personality, I would not do anything to ruffle his quest to lead this great party, for It is possible.
Hon: Eric Nana Agyemang Prempeh
