Statement: Akufo-Addo apologises to Nana Konadu

Upon his arrival at the Efua Sutherland Children’s Park Thursday for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) final campaign rally, Nana Akufo-Addo, presidential candidate of the NPP was informed by one of his aides that former First Lady, Nana Konadu Agyemang-Rawlings, leader of the National Democratic Party (NDP), had endorsed his candidature for the presidency.

In the course of his speech at the rally, Nana Akufo-Addo expressed his gratitude to leading figures of other political parties, namely Abu Ramadan, National Youth Organiser of the People’s National Convention (PNC), and Nana Agyenim-Boateng (aka Gyataba), National Chairman of United Front Party (UFP), for their expression of support at the rally, and added also that Nana Konadu Agyemang-Rawlings according to his information had also endorsed his candidature.

It transpires that that information was inaccurate and that Nana Konadu had not expressly endorsed his candidature.

Nana Akufo-Addo apologises unreservedly to former First Lady, Nana Konadu Agyemang-Rawlings, and the Ghanaian people for this piece of misinformation and regrets the entire incident.
